Hi Dave- we hope you do more than sponge off us /img/vbsmilies/smilies/biggrin.gif and that you're not too weird /img/vbsmilies/smilies/eek.gif. We hope you share what you know and add to the mix in the discussions.
Don't forget to take some time to look around the rest of the site beyond the discussion forums. We have excellent cooking articles and other features here as well. Also, I bet you'd enjoy taking part in the Cooking Challenges which change monthly. This month's challenge focuses on Slow Cooking. The link is at the top of the Food and Cooking general forum. You can also see the archives of earlier challenges.
Welcome to the community.
