Hi, AtlantaCook. Welcome to DC. You'll discover in no time that this is a very friendly and active board. As the name states there's a lot of "Discuss Cooking" that goes on.
I wasn't aware that Taste of Home had a discussion group so I can't compare how the two sites work. Take a few minutes and browse through our forums to see what we have to offer. We're glad you've found us.
"As a girl I had zero interest in the stove." - Julia Child
This is real inspiration. Look what Julia became!
