Im a single Dad trying to stop going out to eat all the time and am really enjoying cooking. Now my family is not really close. We don't really get together alot. I found this wonderful website and now I am making a habit of once a week calling some one in my family and inviting them over for supper. I always ask them what part of the world they want food from and no matter where it is I can find a recipe on here. I've been doing this for a couple months now and guess what. I don't have to call them anymore they call me cause they love my cooking. It's bringing my family together a little bit and my son loves when we have company. I just wish I had a dining room now
