Same as others have mentioned, I was a member on Food network forums and this site was suggested to me. Love it here!

I was searching for pasta machines. I came here and got the best advice on which one to buy, and then I stayed.

I was looking for a copy-cat type recipe for the tiny gingerbread muffins at Jason's Deli that I could mix up in my bread maker and I ended up here. I had been thinking about the best way to try and learn to cook. School, individual classes, DVD's, hiring a tutor, etc. When I started reading the posts here, I thought this might be a good place to start since DCers seemed very willing to answer even elementary questions. Also, I like the way the site is set up - it's so easy to search. Last but not least, there are some really funny people here and I LOVE that!

I was Googling food stuff (forget what it was now though) and one of the links deep into the search brought me to a post here... I started looking around and I liked what I saw! I used to be quite active in other food forums, one in particular that shut down (unfortunately) and a few that are still quite popular, but then I started pulling back as some of them became too cliquey, some too snooty, one or two just too overbearing (rules, rules more rules... and few other rules) and a couple that were just toooooo boring *snore*.

But this place, WOW, what a find! It has all of what I enjoyed in other forums (or is it fora) and none of what I disliked.

That's a winning formula in my book, so thanks for letting me in

I think I had gone to www.ask.com and asked "which is better wolf or viking" since I was in the market for a new range and was getting conflicting information from various salespeople. Behold! There was a thread dedicated to that exact topic. I ended up with the Wolf after the good advice given by the DC people and have been very happy with my selection.

Hey, that's my thread!

I was looking for a good food/cooking forum and found this place in short order.

Was googling for an imitation crab cake and ended up here. The rest is history

Well, about the best that I can do is that I was searching for something. Either a food, or technique, or something, but I came across this forum more than a year ago and found the greatest group of people... glad I found this place!

I was (and still am) a member of Cooking Club of America. Another member (can't remember his name, but he isn't around anymore) posted a link to DC, so I checked it out. I have been here ever since and love it. I told a few others at CCOA about it and they joined here too.
