Welcome Clydie! You'll find a common ground here, that's for sure! Many of us collect cookbooks. I have at least 300 by now as well. It's time for me to do a "count" soon. It may be closer to 400 by now!! Time for a library addition to my home!
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.
