I'm a mom and wife with an empty nest. I was never very interested in cooking since everyone else in the family cooks. I'm trying to improve my skills for a variety of reasons, good health being one. I record cooking shows to play back while on the treadmill. I'm retired now so I have time to focus on knitting and yard work - and being a better cook. I live out in the country, 45 - 60 minutes from town, so planning and being organized is helpful when I do make that trip for groceries. For that reason I really appreciate the special features that Recipezaar has to offer.
