What’s For Dinner? The Vision

What’s For Dinner? Was created for 3 Reasons:

1. I noticed that many of my friends’ status updates on Facebook were about food! What we were feeding our families, what we wished we could feed our families, how we felt when we had no IDEA what to feed our families…and I thought it would be great if we had a forum where we could discuss those inspirations (or lack thereof).

2. As a fledgling cook and baker myself, I always have questions. I wanted to be able to talk to the ladies who have been providing culinary fare for their friends and families for years. I wanted to sit at their feet, so to speak, and hear their wisdom.

3. I wanted a place to come where the recipes I found would be tried and true by people I KNOW! Other recipe sites are great, and the feedback is great, but I have never had a phone conversation with those cooks, or rejoiced over the birth of a baby with those cooks, or cried with those cooks. I wanted a place to come where the recipes I found would be contributed by people I have a relationship with (and that includes ON LINE relationships–I feel so close to all of you-whether I’ve met you in person or not). It’s so fun for me to make something that I know someone in this group has made in their own kitchen. It makes me feel close to you, and brings me fond thoughts of you every time I make it.

For those reasons, there are some guidelines I’d like to suggest for our posts:

1. Please post recipes that you have already tried and found to be good! If you are thinking of trying a recipe but haven’t yet, by all means, let’s talk about it! But please refrain from posting a specific recipe if you have not actually made it yourself.

2. Please keep the posts food related and positive. Of course we all need to vent at times! If you’re having a rough day and need a listening ear, PLEASE message me or ANY of the What’s For Dinner? members and let it all out! Being there for each other is one of the things that makes this group so special. But I’d love to keep what’s on the wall exclusively about What’s For Dinner? (or dessert….or breakfast…you get the idea. :-)  )

Thank you for taking the time to read my little dissertation. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to let me know.

Much love to each of you, and happy cooking!
