My new adventure

Hello to all of my new cooking buddies (and those who I have yet to meet)! I've been a member of Allrecipes since 2006, but this is my first foray into the wilds of publicly bragging about my cooking. I've blogged about a lot of things, but never thought
that I had much to share about cooking. That is, until I got on Facebook. In addition to posts about writing (I'm a freelance writer) and my dogs (I'm a BIG Newfie nut--feel free to ask), I would punctuate my wall from time to time with posts about what I
was cooking. I didn't realize that it would meet with such favor--or that so many people would ask for recipes of things I made.
I never thought I was a *bad* cook; I just never really believed that what I did was worthy of talking about. My significant other, David, raves about my cooking, but like every good man who wants his partner to love him, he should. My friend Sonja (AR
name: ilkaisha) suggested that I might like to get involved with Allrecipes' Allstars, so I applied. Whaddaya know? I got the gig, and I've "met" so many wonderful folks online. I am truly blessed with such good fortune.
So, now I am charged with promoting Allrecipes through my own social network. It's a task I take on gladly. Not because I think I'm an especially good cook, because I am probably just average. However, I love meeting new people and learning. I've learned
more these past two weeks about cooking than I have in the past year. It's true, the ancient Latin proverb: "Fervet olla, vivit amicitia." Translation: "While the pot boils, friendship endures."
I'll do my best to keep the pot boiling here and elsewhere. Check out my WordPress blog:
