5. if i forgotten your nationality, i probably haven't teased you, yet.

seriously tho, i have learned so much from all of the good people here i couldn't begin to list everything, nor thank everyone enough.

I forgot to mention, that I learned that no matter how old that men get, they are still children!!! And the world just wouldn't be the same without them!!
Thanks to bucky and a few other of the goofballs here, I've learned to laugh when I didn't particularly feel like it. Thanks you guys!!!

The reason I love this site is that the folks are so kind, everyone is just there to help.

Have learned so many things.

If someone asks a question I cannot answer usually Google or go to our books and learn a lot.

By the time I get back, most often, other posters have already answered the question.

You folk are so smart.

To Sallyj, I roast my cut up taters in the oven in a pan covered with aluminum foil for about forty minutes, and then take the foil off. Yes it steams them at the beginning but browns them at the end.

And to us they come out great.

Now why we 'roast' tater bits and 'bake' whole spuds is something I just cannot work out.

God bless y'all.

I've learned that if you ask a question, you always get an answer.

If you want a recipe, you can always find one

If you give a recipe, there are many thanks from everyone

And last but not least, if your having a hard time, people are here to help, no matter if it has to do with cooking or personal life situations. DC is a good community not just for cooking but for friends.

Karma to you if it was working....its the thought that counts

Chipotle. I'd never really used it before and now I love using it all the time.

I've learned here that there are great people willing to offer support in every way. Also, that giving one's opinion should be diplomatic. We're not here to hurt anyone's feelings but to help and support each other. And who knows, make a few friends along the way.

I've gotten a lot of last minute help. My usual panic mode.

I've also learned a lot about bread, which I was pretty much in the dark about before.

From this site and living in Europe I've learned how much easier it is to measure by weight rather than volume.

I've become closet fans of Ishbel, Cara, Haggis, and Yakuta because their recipes and hints have never failed.

And for the OP- we don't used packaged products because we eat whole, organic foods instead of processed foods, so I don't consider myself a SNOB because I don't use packaged food, but a healthy person. But, in Germany, it's a lot easier to find non-processed foods and most people don't rely on it because the pace of life is slower than in the US.

Oh, and ETA: I've learned more about different cultures and how food plays different roles in different countries, which is very cool, in my opinion. I like expanding my horizons.

One thing I love about this place is that you all have welcomed me with open arms. I've made some great friends here.
I get a kick out of talking with people from all over the world, and learning what they eat and how they prepare it.
The cooking links section is amazing...one can find most anything there.
And I've gotten so many wonderful recipes and ideas from you folks.

This is easily the best cooking forum I've ever run across.

We get by with a little help from our friends
