If you can't tell by my profile name I am a military spouse. As a military spouse we often are asked to bring something to potlucks, bake something for a bake sale or make a dinner for a family in need. Sometimes, well more than sometimes we are told by
our spouses at the last minute "hey we are going to a bbq and need to bring something." My husband has done that too me more times than I care to think about. In fact my husband did that to me back in September 2001.
I remember all to well, the thoughts of what the heck am I going to bring. Well that and other thoughts like, why the heck didn't you tell me before the night before. My frustration led me to the computer and searching for recipes and later onto Allrecipes.
I remember I didn't have time to go to the store and searched for recipes by looking at the ingredients they had. I ended up making a spinach dip that was a big hit. From that point on Allrecipes became my go to site for recipes. It has been over ten years
since I became a member and I still use Allrecipes to search for new recipes that will become the next big hit!
With Allrecipes the misses have been few and far between but the hits have been plentiful. I now have a huge selection of family and friend favorite recipes. With Allrecipes I have been able to grow as a cook and broaden my cooking range. Today my cooking style
is different than what it was 10 years ago, it has changed for the better! I am now the person that people come up to and say, "umm... Debbie... can you make us a cake, do you think you make us 2 cakes, pretty please". When something yummylicious is brought
to a function people come up to me and ask for the recipe. I just tell them to go to Allrecipes. I honestly could not tell you how many people I have recommended Allrecipes to.
Allrecipes is simply the best website to go to, to look for recipes. I personally LOVE the ingredient search. I use it all the time. I love looking through the photos at the different recipes too. That is how some of our family favorite recipes have been found.
Then there is the Buzz where you can interact with others. Cooking videos, helpful articles and even menu plans. So many things to help you make your very best meal
If you are needing something yum to make, Allrecipes is the place for you! Thank you Allrecipes for all the wonderful features you have and helping me become a better cook!
