I am a retired flight attendant living north of Boston with my husband, an airline pilot, happily busying myself with volunteer work. With our “finicky child” off to college, I am cooking for two. I collect cookbooks and have no idea how many I have. With a glass of wine and a cookbook in my hands I am totally transported to my “happy place”. I admire both the creators of the recipes and the food stylists who make their creations look so appetizing in the photographs. Of course, the helpful reviews and fabulous photos from others keep me coming back to Allrecipes. I don’t consider myself a good cook, just a good "chooser of recipes". One of my favorite sources for new recipes and cooking tips are my many friends who are passionate and talented cooks; I am constantly inspired and delighted by their culinary expertise.
