I love to eat and I enjoy cooking, but I have no intention of creating yet another recipe site. There are way too many recipe sites out here on the web and this is not going to be yet another one serving the same recipes.

For sure there will be some recipes on this site but in most cases they won't be anything you can find elsewhere on the web unless it was copied from here.

Like many of you, I love to try new things and tweak them a bit. Sometimes a simple addition or deletion to a recipe creates something entirely different. When I modify a recipe I have found online or in a book I fully intend to attribute the source.

There will also be articles about food and cooking and that go beyond just throwing out a recipe. In fact most of my recipes will be within the body of an article.

If you have a favorite family recipe you would like to share or if you would like to write an article about cooking and see it published on the web, please read the article guidelines and drop us an email via our contact form.

Our solemn promises are: Your email will not be used for any reason other than to contact you about your submission. It will never be abused by us. Read our privacy policy.
