Hi there, Lillypie! And
Regarding recipes, there is a Food section of the boards you may want to check out. There are recipes scattered all through there. I don't think they are classified (Meat dishes, Breads, Vegetables, etc), they just sort of show up whenever and wherever people post them.
Also, try doing a Search, or even an Advanced Search.
HTH and have fun poking around! I'm sure I'll run into you here and there!
