I've been here a bit longer than some. I migrated over from the CCA boards. I loved the camaraderie I had over there, but my computer HATED their set up and refused to load anything. One of the members there mentioned Bubbagourmet was over here and I arrived and never left again.

My niece had just been diagnosed with multiple food allergies and I was looking for info on oatmeal flour and how that would work as a replacement for wheat flour in recipes. I tend to visit the site at least twice a day even if I don't always post. I've made some good friends here that I "visit" with Facebook too.

I could give up chocolate but I'm no quitter!

I was looking for a recipe also and everyone was so nice I felt at home. I'm not here as often as I would like, but when I need something I know just where to go.

I have been a longtime member of another Social Knowledge forum and since I like cooking (and have been doing more) I thought I would check DC out.

My story is a little funny....though at the time it was embarrassing.

I did a search on something I was looking for....can't even remember what. I ended up in the middle of a very old thread on DC and wanted to reply to a question someone else had. I signed up, posted, and then realized what I had done, so I posted again apologizing, figuring I would just leave quietly. I then got a welcoming letter and decided to check this place out. I have been here ever since!

I also came in from the TV food network board. At first it got to be way to TV personalities oriented, then people started getting a little, well, uncomfortable for me. So with that one shut down, several people mentioned that they were transferring over to this site, and here I am.

The reason I went looking for a network, when I'd never joined one before and haven't since (although I've looked for some having to do with other subjects that interest me, I've never found one easy to use and sympatico) might sound silly. But there is something about me that when I'm in a grocery store, people will ask me what to do with this, how to find that. Now you have to understand, I've traveled the country far and wide, and people ask me this everywhere. Do I look like I know what I'm doing or what? More than once grocery store employees would overhear me explaining something to a young (or old, or whatever, someone unfamiliar with a product) about why this or that might be a better product for them to buy for them, at that given time, and would say, gee, I wish the management would hire you. So when I found this I loved it. I use it less for recipe exchange than for advice, and fine personal support to boot.

When I was on the food network board. It got shut down and the people were annoying, so once it shut down I transferred over to this site and it's the best thing ever!! Been using this forum since like middle school.

I was looking for some information on Gunter Wilhelm knives, which I found a wonderful little thread on, and then I started looking around at other threads. I think I've fallen in love :)

Now, to go resurrect some dead threads about SoCal and burger joints >.>
