Hi, clydie. Welcome to DC. Once you play around a bit, you'll be able to navigate the site very easily. When you get stuck, just ask one of the site moderators. They're here to help and helped me plenty when I was a newbie.
Looking forward to diving into the shoe box of recipes from your uncle. I'll bet there are some treasures there.
