I joined on February 22, 2007. I remember I had a question regarding a catering event I was planning and Google brought me to the middle of a thread here. I joined to add some feedback to the post it gave me and then was embarrassed to figure out out the post was a couple of years old. I posted again to apologize and left DC thinking I wouldn't be back. That October I got a birthday email from them and thought I would check the site out for real. I became an active member, and while I have come and gone a few times for various reasons, I know I can always count on my DC family.

This site has done many things for me - it has gotten me through several serious health issues, my Dad's illness and recent passing, and that embarrassment I mentioned earlier. I am becoming a better person for knowing this awesome group of people. I have been part of several other sites (not cooking) and left because I had healed past the need for the site. That just doesn't happen here. Because the bond is food, it is not so much a NEED to be here but a WANT.

Sort of you come for the meal and stay for the entertainment and fellowship!

I joined in Sept of 2004 have been here ever since. The members here have supported me through many of life's hurts and joy's. I can't imagine being at any other site. I came here from another site that has been closed and it was a bad one. Here it is peaceful and mostly kind. Helpful and soothing. Family that is all I can say and loving. What more could anyone say? I feel lucky to have found DC. It hasn't changed all that much I find the rules have loosened up and it's easier to navagate the boards or forums. People are the same of course, good and kind. i find our moderators and administrators to be the same, helpful, kind and strict when need be. We do try guys So things here are much the same as the day I joined.What I do miss is some of the mods and administrators that I grew to love and have left us. I do wish I could talk with some of them once more.

I found this place as I was searching for a recipe. Stopped in, forgot about the recipe I was looking for and found so much great information that I decided to stay.

Lots of great info, tons of wonderful sharing and a huge quantity of humor resides here .. who would want to leave !!

I'm glad I found this place .. it's always active unlike some other places and you just never know what you might discover with all the knowledge that is shared here.

2 thumbs up for DC !!

I think I was looking for a food forum to post my hibachi photos......which led me to this site.
I posted a Home Depot joke which got me into trouble, then immediately decided this was where I belonged.

I am kind of a newbie here. I was looking for a new frosting to use besides the Hershey one. Googld sent me here. I took a look through the forums and decided to stay. I used to belong to a group of seven of us that was formed from the old Food Network forum. We formed friendships that brought visits to each other's homes along with phone calls. Lots of trips to other states. Then along came Facebook, and we just seemed to fall apart as a group. We still keep in touch somewhat.

But here, I feel at home. I know I can get wordy at time. Like now. I feel like everyone here is my next door neighbor. Care to come in and have a cup of coffee? I just made a fresh pot.

DC is a blast! The folks here are phenominal, and I've learned so much. I really enjoy the communal sense of humor!

I've been here for a little more than a year. The iPad DC app makes it really easy to connect and browse.

Addie, you mean there was a time you weren't part of DC? And I mean that in the most loving of ways. You just kind of slipped in the back door and joined the party like you had always been here.

And come on, you would NEVER replace that cherished Hershey recipe .

I'm still trying to get used to the Android App....and I think it is still trying to get used to me too! So far it has been a bit of a love/hate relationship, but I know we will work out our differences!

I forgot to mention the adoption rate here is the best. Right Laurie?
