How did you find DiscussCooking?

I love having new members join in here! The more the merrier!!!

I'm just curious ... how did you find your way here? Was it a link from another site, from a search engine ....????

I found it waaaaay back when when I was at Garden Chat one day (forget the actual name of the forum-that could be it though) and someone (probably old admin's girlfriend, Choo, who used to run the site gave the link to this site) - I came over - I answered a few questions that were posted and she PM'd me and said - hey, did you notice under your name??? It said "Site Helper" and you know the rest of the story.

Talking

My husband found it for me.
I'm not sure how he ran across it.
He emailed me the link and I've been here 24/7 ever since.

Cooking sites were mentioned in our local paper and I've been a commitable member ever since! What a great group of people you are!

The Food Network was good for something. It brought me here.


Good question, Michael!

Food Network - it seems that's why we all joined Sept. 2004. When they announced closing their boards, people started posting other boards they like and we started looking around.

Wow, I didn't realize so many people here were from Food Network. Hey, maybe that could be a tagline: "Food Network couldn't handle it but DiscussCooking could (and does)!"
