Hello, all you chefs!

Since I'm new to this site, I thought I'd introduce myself.

As "readncoffee" you can, perhaps, see that my abilities in the kitchen are not of an Emeril or Iron Chef caliber. However, I have been cooking for a long time, and pride myself on using my grandmother's old recipes. You know the type: no actual measurements, but more of the "pinch of this, about a walnut-sized bit of that."

I look forward to learning from all of you, and, perhaps, I'll be able to pass a hint or two along to you as well.

Happy cooking!

Welcome to DC!! My mum taught me to cook with the same sort of measurements. As a kid, I always came unstuck when she started talking about "conker-size" - we didn't have conker nuts where I grew up!!

Too many restaurants, not enough time...
