Smile Wv Grandma's Daughter

HI THERE. MY NAME IS MELISSA AND MY MOM TOLD ME ABOUT YOUR GROUP. I AM THE ONE WHOSE HUSBAND RUINED THE FAVORITE BEAN POT. THANKS FOR ALL THE TIPS, MANY I HAVE TRIED, THE REST I WILL TRY. ONE THING I CAN SAY IS THAT HE DIDNT HALF DO IT WHEN HE BURNED IT. WE ARE A BLENDED FAMILY. THE NUMBER CONTINUES TO GROW. I HAD THREE CHILDREN, MY HUSBAND HAD TWO, ONE SON GOT MARRIED WHICH ADDED A WIFE, ONE GRANDBABY WAS ADDED, AND WE PICKED UP A SPARE (A WONDERFUL SON THAT NEEDED A FAMILY) ALONG WITH THE NUMBERS, THE LOVE GROWS AS WELL. WE ARE BLESSED TO HAVE MY MOM WITH US ALOT AND FOR THAT WE ARE VERY THANKFUL. COOKING IS A CHALLENGE WITH ALL THE MOUTHS TO FEED BUT I LOVE EVERY MINUTE OF IT. THANK YOU FOR THE CHANCE TO BE A PART OF YOUR COMMUNITY. I LOOK FORWARD TO TIME SPENT WITH YOU ALL.

Hi Melissa - welcome to Discuss Cooking. Have you tried the cold oven cleaner yet? I really feel that will work the best.

Hi Melissa, welcome to what is probably the friendliest site on the web. From your DC name I would guess you are from WVA, which means we are neighbors, VA here.

Jump in whenever you like, we are all here to learn and share experiences. We all respect one another.

As I said, it is one great site and has just become better by you joining us.

Welcome, Mrs. Pike, do you have room for my son and his family??? Just kidding. Glad you joined us and haven't totally disowned your DH. I ruined a great pot as a teen when I made popcorn without oil..........hid the burnt and blackened totally ruined pot at the back of the cabinet. Next day....hey, Dad, does popcorn need oil? Yes, why? Nothing, just wanted to know. My mother found that pot a few years later........
