Welcome. Though SOME of us have whacky senses of humor, there are a boat-load of talented cooks on this site. And that boat is as big as an aircraft carrier. You will find us a group of fun and caring people, who love to tell a joke, and make the ebst ribs you've ever eaten, just ask my cousin Nancy. Uh, um, oh yeh, we love to cook, and know a bit about it. That being said, I suspect from your intro that you are just like that too. We look forward to your posts, whether sharing what you know, or looking for answers. Just one more thing, I go by the online moniker - Chief Longwind of the North, for a reason. It was given to me by my friends here at DC. I don't know why, but they tell me I talk a lot.
If you ask nicely, I'll share one of two recipes voted - World's Best Pancakes.
Seeeeeeeya; Chief Longwind fo the North
