AllRecipes...Instant Feedback and Buzz Communication

It took me a few months of actively being part of AllRecipes before I discovered the "Recipe Exchange" which is now called the "Recipe Buzz." Although I am not quite as active as I have been the past few years I am glad to know that the recipe buzz is always there 24 hours a day.
I can't tell you how many times I have been bored or up late at night chatting on the recipe buzz with fellow buzzers to pass time. I often wonder what happened to some of the regulars that I don't "see" around anymore. I am pretty sure some people wonder the same thing about me...since my daughter started kindergarten this fall I found myself more busy between dropping her off and picking her up from school.
My fellow AllRecipe freinds have been there when I found out about my autoimmune disease and turned to others for questions or when I was making mashed potatos on Thanksgiving for the first time and had beginner questions. To me and I am sure many of you, the Recipe Buzz feature is absolutely priceless. Where else could I get an instant answer when I am in the middle of making a pie or batch of cookies and realize that I am out of an ingredient and need suggestions and opinions?
I am trying to work my way back to the recipe buzz on a more regular basis since I have been on an eight month hiatus. Don't worry...I am still doing a lot of baking and I have even branched out and began cooking more often!

I love having the instant response as well.. I often wonder what happened to some people. Life changes and people don't always have the time that they used to. Can't help but wondering how some of them are doing.

About Me
I am a Southern California wife and mother of one. I am a simple person that enjoys home decor, baking, and spending time with my family. You can also find me on YouTube - House of Aqua:
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy making a variety of ice cream, cookies, cakes, and candies. In recent years I have branched out by making new dinner recipes and found that I enjoy the challenge.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I have a daughter that loves to help me bake. We spend Christmas Eve in the kitchen making special cookies for Santa together.
My cooking triumphs
I consider tempering chocolate and making caramels a triumph. You either get it right or your wrong!
My cooking tragedies
I failed several times at trying to make fondant centers for truffles. I decided to put my candymaking book away for a while!
