Red face I'm Mommy Dearest

I'm a newbie to this forum. I've been watching a little while and was encouraged to post from the webmaster.

I am Mommy Dearest and I've received that name because I am an office manager and I guess I run a tight ship.

Anyway, like you, I love to cook, read about cooking, watch cooking shows, collect cookbooks and, in my spare time, I love to eat good food. I probably won't be posting too much as I thoroughly enjoy reading others' posts. However, I'll occasionally "kick in" with an idea or opinion.

I have a large collection of Le Creuset in all colors; but mostly cherry red. I have a few pieces of vintage LC but nothing spectacular. I also have a few basic shiny pieces of All Clad and am looking forward to getting a 4 qt. saucepan in the near future. I don't have a problem with non-stick so I hope that doesn't exclude me from this forum.

I am a fairly good cook and I love spicy foods. My favorite seasoning is "hot." I put creole seasoning in everything, whether it be eggs, vegetables or even Italian. However, I do not use it in my dessert baking (I'm not goofy!). I like my chilli without beans if that is important to know but if I must have it with beans it's with red kidney beans.

I love red wines and I'm especially fond of Merlot. Lately I have also enjoyed a really good bottle of Chianti and want to try others.

Italian food is my very favorite and I live for pasta.

Okay, so I got my feet wet and submitted my obligatory "New Thread."

If you are on the East Coast, I hope you don't get snowed in with this weekend's blizzard.

Talk to you.

Greetings and welcome to you, Mommy Dearest. Doubtful that anyone will hold it against you about the non stick cookwear! I also like Italian food, spicy seasoning (Tony's is our favorite) and good merlot. Glad you've joined the group!

Welcome to the site! I loved my stainless steel pans, but I also love my non stick. There is a time and place for everything and non stick is no exception

I am not familiar with "hot" seasoning, but some desserts do very well with some heat, especially chocolate. You might want to experiment a little and then let us know what you find out.

Anyway we are very glad you decided to join us!
