I just wanted to say Hello! I was having a little trouble signing on, mainly because I couldn't read my own handwriting for my password - but finally figured it out.

I am happy to be here.

My family is now teeny tiny, just two of us, so am always looking on the internet for fun recipes, I can easily resize to a smaller quantity and/or freeze. I will post some of them here and hope you like them. Linda
