Welcome to DC, Eileen. What are your favorite things to eat/cook? There are a lot of very good cooks on this forum who come up with very inspirational ideas. Watch out for the Pie Cult! They'll woe you and before you know it, you'll be shopping on-line for a mini pie maker to add to your kitchen cupboards--and, the Mothership will deliver it and help you find space in that kitchen you may think is already overflowing with appliances and gadgets.
