A few years ago, I discovered I love cooking! Then I discovered this website and all of the wonderful recipes. This is a good place for a fledgling cook to start--so many good cooks with lots of good advice. I just now decided to register because there are a lot of recipes I've tried on here--and many have become my favorites! When I'm not cooking, I'm a voracious reader and write my own fiction. I'm also very much into politics--and like debating with people (in a civil manner).
