Wow! I know how friendly this place is, but it's great to see friends greet eachother as you have. :) Of course we'll let you join in! One word though: the professionals' forums are reserved for them to post in, but you and all of us who are home cooks are encouraged to read all you like in them. All other forums are open for you to post and enjoy.

Bernhardt, we're delighted to have you here and hope you enjoy exploring everything from the cooking articles, blogs and photo gallery to the cookook reviews, recipes and the many forums. We also have a search tool to help you dig through the years of discussions and other resources.

What are your food passions? Are there ingredients or dishes you really enjoy? I hope you share them with us.

Welcome!

Hello Mezzaluna ,

I always thought I was a professional chef. I did put over 50 years into this profession and now since I am retired and work as a home cook I think I still am a professional chef ,just no longer working for paycheck. But if you think I am a home cook now,I can live with it too . I don't need a title anymore, my only job now is to make my wife happy for the rest of her life

Hi,
I'm new, too. I'm not sure I'll get the hang of it....not only new here, but my first blog, etc. I'm hoping to find where I can ask a question about how to keep bugs off my basil. I have been spraying it with a VERY VERY weak bleach/water solution. I don't feel I can spray it with anything toxic and then use it in food items. Any ideas?

Hi Patmarietta,
I am sorry, but i can not help you with your bug problem on your basil. This year I did not plant any basil at all, and I never had any bugs on my basil before.
But I do have problem in my garden too; the leaves on my oleander bushes are getting eaten up by lots of caterpillars, the result of an invasion of the oleander moth.
How can I keep them away ?

Basil Bugs

I am having the same problem. I seem to remember my Dad telling me that he went to a Feed Store or Garden Supply Store and bought some type of "soap" that is used for herbs. I am going to look for a product such as this.

Hi Bernard,
Thanks for ta
king time to reply = a couple weeks ago - to my bug on the basil problem. Actually, my bug problem has disappeared. Hope yours has, too. AI have not grown that particular bush so I can't help. I'm sure someone has by now.
