Newest update March 28, 2008; I am so grateful and excited. A wonderful, generous, kind anonymous person gifted me with PM and I can't wait to use all the features. Thank you! I might add a couple notes or links to my page here such as forums I frequent, fave searches, and helpful info. Update March 2008: I was given the opportunity to join my very first recipe swap (I added the banner below, thanks Um Safia) This swap was really fun, interesting, and helpful. Lots of great recipes to choose from and lots of exposure for my own. I thought I'd update this a bit. It's April of 2007 already (wow!) and I might have written the stuff below at least a year ago, and longer. I live in AZ, with a roommate and a nice boyfriend. My roommate has only tried my cooking once, but my bf, bless his heart, tries really hard to tolerate it, lol! He's a good cook in his own right, but me, I'm still a newbie cook at heart. I still enjoy 'zaar and sometimes spend hours and hours on here, as it's still friendly, helpful, and interesting. :) Also, this is late in saying, but I'm supposed to be on an IBS-safe diet consisting of no dairy, egg yolks, caffeine, red meat, too much fat, everything I love, etc.... so I'm working on it, it's taking me years and years, but I've incorporated this kind of diet into my other eating, and if my tummy gets mad at me, well, I only have me to blame. :/
I've been married for almost two years and it's the first time I get to really cook for someone other than myself. (Hehe, I signed up with here not too long after I wrote this, now I'm separated - not because of my cooking lol - but surprisingly found myself again, acting as 'housewife'.) I'm not a great cook, but I do follow after my mother, who tends to estimte her ingredients and taste as she goes, but she and my sister are two of the best cooks I know. The best rule of thumb for seasonings is always add too little, you can always add more, but can't always take away if there's too much. I mostly try other recipes I find, but now and then experiment with whatever I have available if I can't get to the store or am broke, and sometimes come up with pretty good recipes. I also have a hard time cooking usually, it takes me longer than most people as I am legally blind and have no depth perception so sometimes it's hard for me to measure and prepare food. Any of the recipes I post might be estimated unless otherwise stated. Sorry for the inconvenience. :) I found this place doing one of my recipe searches. It looks like a fun place to get recipes. Take care all and happy cooking! :)

Chocolate, french fries, Now & Laters candy, potatoes, turkey bacon, regular bacon, ...okay how about this, I'll list my least favorite foods, that'll make a shorter list and then you'll know what's not on that list is something I love! LOL
As of 2007, I am finding that unsweetened almond milk, unsweetened soy milk, Soysations brand soy cheese shreds, Tofutti Better Than Cream Cheese, Better Than Sour Cream, Silk Live! cultured soy, and Egg Beaters, are ALL quite good imho. :) I'm still working on getting used to regular tofu, though. And veggie burgers aren't that bad at all. :)
My least favorite foods are tofu, brussel sprouts, sardines, anchovies, anything that's too spicy, and veggie burgers (I admit I only tried a premade, processsed kind from the grocery store), anything from the deli called '(olive, pickle, pimento) loaf', and I think that's all I can think of for now, heh.
