Yesterday I went to the grocery and came out with the entire kit and caboodle. Today, I didn't know what I wanted to cook since my husband has to work the entire weekend. So, to make it easy, I just ordered fast food for me and the kids and my grandmother.

Well my husband called and asked what were we having for dinner tomorrow and I decided to take out some chicken thighs from the deep freezer and googled "chicken thighs". All the websites were aimed for I was really fascinated by the website because it allowed me to see all the reviews that were there and I signed up as a Supporting Member today and had been a member of since 2004. I tell you, it's amazing how many people are interested in eating healthy and looking for different recipes.

I am so excited about cooking tomorrow, I modified and printed out my recipes. Thanks to the reviews.

Whenever I get stuck, I will look to allrecipes, not only because I paid for a 2 yr membership, but because they have pics, and good reviews.

Ditto to what Patty said. The Allrecipes recipe exchange is the best site for food, friends, and fun (howdy Patty). I find myself there everyday whether it's food related or not. My husband has commented numerous times how much the website has enhanced/improved my skills in the kitchen (I guess I just thought I was great before,LOL!)

I joined I think in '02 originally and used it every now and then, but within the last month or so have jumped feet first onto the A.R. bandwagon! I, like you, LOVE that I can read feedback and suggestions prior to trying something out, and that I can view multiple recipes for the same thing and pick the one that seems right for me (and/or what I have available)! I just joined as a supporting member a couple weeks ago too, this site is fantastic and I am excited to get good use of the membership and my time here. It is fun to plan out, prepare and enjoy so many fantastic new recipes!

Welcome to smurfdom! This is a great site! I don't know if you've found the Recipe Exchange yet, but it's way more than what the "tab" implies. Just click at the top of the page to find out. Okay, just realized I'm not the first to invite you, but I'll invite any way. Hope to "see" you there!

I am back after being isolated for a few years. Well my cooking has improved a lot and I am trying new and healthier menu items, I hope. I joined Weight Watchers so that I can get my weight down. I will be on this website a lot since it now has a menu planner and you get to choose how much sodium, carbs, and all that good stuff, you want in your system. I'm excited, but at the same time, I will be very cautious about what food choices to choose from. Anyone have any suggestions, opinions, or even want to share recipes, please by all means, do so. Thanks a lot.

About Me
I am a stay at home mom of two amazing little boys and a wife to an amazing husband. I am currently in school to broaden my horizons.
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking shrimp pasta and also baking ooey-gooey, as well. Those two are my favorites; but I like to cook other seafood dishes as well as pasta dishes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love to get together on Sundays to cook dinner and/or to have potluck and also, to gather for the holidays to have all my family over to eat and be happy.
My cooking tragedies
My mom gave me the recipe for her stuffed seafood eggplant. I tried it until I got it right, the third time, that is. After that, omg! was it delicious.
