I was looking for a cooking forum to learn new things and friends to chat with, and I hit the jackpot!

I was a crossover from the TV food network. I loved this as an outlet for my grocery store habits! I'm always helping people at my grocery stores, everywhere I've lived and shopped. So many times I've helped confused shoppers from young newly together couples who never had to cook before, to an elderly gentleman who saw me handling the avocados and wanted to know what I was looking for, he'd never bought one before. His inclination was to go for the greenest. I simply asked him when he was planning to eat it. No, you can't eat that one tonight. Are you slicing or mashing (guacomole) it? The latter? Then this is the one you want. Once it was a young man who was making his first meal for his future in-laws and wanted to buy a cheaper cut of pork while his fiancee wanted to buy tenderloins. I recommended at least a loin, but probably the tenderloin, they're full proof and it is already almost dinner time.

Oh, I'm digressing, as usual. but coming to this site gives me an outlet
