When I moved out with my boyfriend of 2 years in June 07, I had never cooked anything from scratch before. Every meal I had made had come from a box or pre-frozen bag. Desperate for new meal ideas, I stumbled upon recipezaar, and fell in love. This website has helped inspire many creative dinners, and I plan to begin sharing them with the world soon enough. My favorite cookbook has to be the one my mother passed down to me, the classic "Betty Crocker Cookbook".
