Why didn't I find this forum sooner?

HI Everyone-
I was actually searching on "google" for a good substitute for hangar steak and stumbled across your forum.

Have been cooking since I could stand on a stool in the kitchen and reach the counter. I have no formal training except "School of Mom" who went to "University of Grandma's Kitchen."
Cooking is my hobby and my passion. The highly educated part would be my 2 master's degrees in the sciences and unable to find a job.
So, I cook. Lucky husband can't boil water but he does the dishes.

Well with your education, this is a great place to put your knowledge to work. After all there is science involved in all the foods we make here.

Welcome to DC. Glad to have you. Don't be surprised if we shorten your name to HE. We love to shorten names and save on typing. If you find yourself feeling down on days you don't get that job, go to "Today's Funny" and it will cheer you up immediately. Start at the beginning. By page two you will be laughing all day long. Good luck in your job hunting.

You have to live where the jobs are for your expertise. You don't live in the Artic if your job is swimming and diving instructor. Fortunately, home cooking can be done no matter where you live. And you don't even need a degree. Just passion and someone to cook for along with being part of DC.

Welcome to DC!
According to my spellcheck that is spelled "ejermakated". So what good are your four degrees today?
