I came to find Allrecipes when doing a search for recipes online. That was in 2005. Since then I have used Allrecipes as my go to site when it comes to cooking! I couldn't imagine my life without it.
One summer I spent the whole summer experimenting with a new recipe everyday! It was great! My DH especially enjoyed it. His only problem was that I never repeated any of his favorites. It was alot of fun. (I especially enjoyed hearing him brag to everyone
that would listen...he still does every now and then!!!)
I have gotten most of my cooking experience through Allrecipes. My mother never let me in the kitchen, not that I ever really tried. It wasn't until I was married and on my own that I actually began to cook, using a recipe book. Since then I have come to love
it. I love the praise I receive when something is successful. I am usually my biggest critic even when my family loves the dish. There always seems to be something I feel I could of done better.
The variety of recipes that Allrecipes offers is amazing. Originally that is what kept me coming back. I loved reading the reviews and looking at all of the great pictures. However in recent years I have come to love the Buzz. Everyone is always so helpful.
When I find myself stumped I turn to the fantastic people there to help me out! Many times during the week I get calls from friends asking ME how to do something or what I would do. It is a great compliment to me that they think I am that good of a cook, that
I would have the answer!
I look forward to reviewing recipes and love snapping pictures of my food. Not that I always post the pictures...some just aren't worthy to be put up! Many times I find myself taking pictures from every angle possible in every light possible only to delete
all of them as they just aren't as good as I thought they should be! My family gets a big kick out of me photographing food!
I can honestly say I don't think I would be the cook I am without Allrecipes!!!
