Found at last!

I've looked for dinner ideas so many times; called my bf even more and never managed to stumble upon this site. At long last! And what terrible timing! I'm supposed to be getting my family ready for a weekend trip to NC (bbq!!) and I would rather spend the time acquainting myself around here. This will be the most anticipated Monday ever - home and at my computer.

I am chomping at the bit to see all of the recipe variations. I have an epileptic daughter being treated with the Atkins diet for seizures: ultra-low carb, ultra high-fat. I kind of follow the diet with her to make sure she eats well. My 10yo son can't have MSG, nitrites, nitrates, and a handful of other preservatives. Everyone else in the family is skinny and can eat everything. My 19yo son does.

I'm glad to be here. I was a little intimidated when I first read some of the foums; I thought all of the "Master Chefs" were just that. Mentionning that they had sloppy joes for lunch helped alleviate my fears. I understand the sub-titles now.

Off to pack. Glad to be here.

We'll be here when you get back. Enjoy your weekend.

While we have several professionals who visit here regularly, mostly we're all just folks who love to cook (and eat).

Welcome to the site Pam. And don't be intimidated. We have everything from professional chefs to people who don't know how to boil water and everything in between and all are welcome.
