The recruiting continues...

If all goes well we should have several new members from MacNeal Hospital joining us on DC!
So far we have covered Blackened Tilapia, a great shrimp in black bean salad, and several recipes from Red Lobster.
I have assured them that with the recipes to be found on here, along with all the advice and help they could ever need to make it for the first time, will be much better than Red Lobster, etc. Many have said they love the recipes they find in magazines but don't have the courage to try them at home. I told them give it a try, and if you run into something you don't understand just pop on DC and ask and someone will have the info for you and be ready to help.
On nurse has already tried the broiled Tilapia in parchment paper with lemon, lime, EVOO, and parsley and loves it! Another tried blackened catfish breaded with Panko and loved it, said it was better than his usual breading.

So don't let me down gang! And if they do show up I think I deserve a t-shirt for my efforts!

We mods and admins are right on the t-shirt thing, Maverick. What with the big bucks we get for doing our jobs, the shirt is sure to be the best and finest quality money can buy. Make space in your dresser for it.

LOL I am always telling people about DC too! People like restaurant servers, cashiers at stores, etc. are pretty much a captive audience! LOL I don't bombard everyone I meet with it, but if the conversation lends itself to it (and you know that one of everyone's favorite topics is food) I always tell them about DC.

Me too. Go figure. I find this a great place to get info, and to share what I know. I also find that the things I say are well received, and critiqued when they need to be critiqued. The feeling on this site is one of genuine people, with nothing to hide. I love reading about msitakes that others have made, and so realize that I'm not alone in this category, and am willing to share my goof-ups in the hopes that it will help someone else from making the same mistakes.

On the other hand, when I find something great, I love to share that in the hopes that it will bring a bit of cullinary joy to others.

In a nutshell, that's what this place is about; and I like it!

I also tell people about Dc when an opportunity arises.
Often at work customers will ask me a question I don't
know the answer to, and I'll tell them about Dc.
I wonder if any of them have joined.
If anyone here has shopped at Giant Eagle let me know lol
