Newbee here

Hi all,
Been looking for a good cooking and baking forum to post in so I'll give these a try. I like what I've seen so far.

I've just turned 70 last December and am retired, finely.

I have no family anymore and really don't socialize very much. I'm mostly full of questions so I hope this doesn't bother anybody.
I'm originally from Los Angeles, born and raised, but am now living in central Arkansas. (Man, what a cultural change!) Been here over 30 years now and still haven't gotten used to it.


Anyway, Chinese and Mexican dishes are what this white Caucasian boy loves to eat all the time. In that order, BTW. Pork and chicken and fish are my favorites.
Never did like cow.


Sooo, what's cookin?

Hi Rick, and welcome. Sounds like your love for Mexican food started in Los Angeles.

I love it too,(Mexican food, not LA), and have been up in Ventura County all my long life.
A good place to check out is the nightly dinner thread where you can see what's actually cooking (or not).

Enjoy!
