New to the site

Hello. I'm frequently referred to around this area as "Hey, you're so and so's <insert appropriate relationship here>," so I'll continue the trend. I'm Goodweed's daughter, Sprout's sister.

I love cooking and experimenting with cooking. I'm not very good at keeping track of measurements. My "recipes" frequently have ingredient amounts like "Enough rosemary to create a light but even dusting over the sauce..." Drives my husband almost as crazy as when I experiment and forget to write down what I did.

My dad has raved about this site forever and periodically harasses me about joining, so now he has one less thing to harasses me about. This means that I'm slowly winning.

I keep hearing about how friendly everyone is so I'm really looking forward to getting to know the community. Hope y'all have a good day!

Oh yeah, and if you don't want to type out my username, you can call me Jess for short.

Welcome to DC (although, I don't know that we want another family member participating in the cook offs <g>). Y'all must have inherited that cooking gene! And here I was convinced it skipped a generation...I must have a mutant cooking gene! Enjoy.

Hello, Jess. I'm an ogre, with the temperament to match, mean, truly mean.

(now I have to change my meds, I'm seeing purple, alien giraffes...)

But since this is GW and clan we are talking about Bucky, it would have to be seasoned water and just the right measurement. They also would have tested tap, filtered, bottled, and distiller from seawater to make sure they got the right kind

What--there are three of them on the forum--maybe the rest of the DC folks should challenge them to a throw down <g>.

Welcome, Jess. I say the more the merrier. Your Dad's right, this is a great place, and you're already family.

Good to know you, Jess!
I'm not at all surprised that you cook by senses, not by recipe. Maybe this DC site can inspire you to jot some things down. I'm hopeful to see an avatar pic for your nick.

I'm not the from a foreign country kind of alien, I'm the from outer-space kind. I'll work on an avatar/portrait.

Thanks to everyone for the welcome. You guys seem like a fun bunch.
