Hello, everybody!

I am really happy to be there and wanna share with you some great information.

I opened for myself a new hobby which makes me happy and this is cooking.

On quarantine, I'm trying to make something new everyday and searching new cooking ideas from books and websites. Actually, my favorite is [Link removed by moderator] which contains a lot of delicious recipes and useful tips of healthy cooking.

Now I'm looking forward to finding some new great websites with creative recipes, maybe somebody can help me with it.

    You cannot post links in discussion threads - you do realize this is an IM forum? Nothing wrong with 'cooking' as an off topic thread...but no promotions permitted.


    Finding cooking sites - simple google search turns up more good sites than you can use.

    Well this its the way on how big business starts ,i have an ideea for you .If you like this niche then open a youtube channel ,blog ,account on social media .Then search everyday for new recipes ,become an expert etc
    The monetization part : Create a video each day with a new recipe ,secretes etc ,make also a blog post ,help people on social media etc .
    In this way you achieve 2 things : you do what you like and you become an expert and you can make money also by promoting an affiliate offer and later on adsesnse etc

    No offense and in all sincerity I have to admit I cannot stand Cooking. To me, why waste hours upon hours of putting together a fancy meal that will be gone in 30 minutes or less. Just go and buy something or just "nuke" it

      Most of my meals are gone in 10 minutes or less. The finest the freezer to microwave or canned goods can offer, I do augment them though with various things, eat a lot of curries, I add some cherry tomatoes and some Cashew nuts to them a some sour cream and Chinese hot sauce.

      I take it then that you can afford to eat out a lot being a man of means and living in a gated trailer park :-) However, not always good for breakfasts if you don't feel like going out. I suspect you have some bare essentials there.

      It takes you 30 minutes to eat?

          True Fact: In Claude's mother tongue, there are no words or phrases for the concept of a "last supper."

    Oh, I love to cook, but I won't call it a hobby. My hobby is fishing, I love to sit on the shore of the lake with a fishing rod on warm mornings, I feel solitude with nature.

      I spend my nights fighting crime as The Alabaster Tallywhacker. My fondest wish is that ....just once...a criminal will look up to a rooftop and yell "Run! It's the Alabaster Tallywhacker!"

        All educated people know what alabaster is.

        For those of you considering looking up the meaning of "tallywhacker"......don't!

        Where the crime fighting, criminal and rooftop comes into it is anyone's guess. The repetitiveness of asking: "Would madam like the deluxe model", and: "Is that cash or card sir", obviously comes with certain side effects.

        The only way you'd make it up to a roof top is if the rest of the building were subterranean.

          If he ever managed to make it to the rooftop of a building, that building would end up becoming subterranean no matter how strong its foundations are.

    Dear oh dear, you would think that everybody spent all their time at home, never going anywhere, and struggling for material to talk about if they decided to venture in here. I admit I haven't been around much as I have had plenty of work, but sadly, it has shriveled up. So I will visit now and then, to see if anything has changed in the forum.

    I do see some old friends and some newbies too. Good luck to all and stay safe, wherever you live.
