But I am sincerely happy to have you here! I think we're going to have a great time.

I just got notice Evelyn has joined our little group.....WELCOME !!!!

Jimmy has kept us up to date on your treatment progress and we're so very happy you are feeling up to joining in the fun.

I have to tell you, the pictures Jimmy shared reminded me of so many things I have not made in a long time...perfect ideas to make and take to the "patio parties" I'll be attending when I get back to our villa in the fall.  I've made a mental note but will probably ask for your ideas again as the time gets closer.  

So glad to have you here, Evelyn !

OK... I was asked by Evelyn to post this for her. She is having difficulty copy pasting with her new iPad she is using temporarily in Texas.
It is hard for me to help her, because I don't have an iPad. The kids may know, so for now, until she gets it straightened out, I am posting this under my Name..


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Hello Cooking Friends,
    Just a little note to (re)introduce myself....I was ERead on the Cooking.com forum...a retired teacher of 34 years all in first grade! I loved it!

    Uncle Jimmy (and his wife, Tina) and I have been email friends for a couple of years now. I have adopted him as my little brother since I lost my only sibling, Walter, on Oct. 1, 1999 of the same lung cancer that I am fighting. He smoked, I never did.  Jimmy has helped me with suggestions for fixing things at home just as Walter did!
    Anyway, I have been spending most of my computer time researching medical info since Feb. 2009 when I was diagnosed with Stage 3 and wasn't able to visit Cooking.com. I do remember the names of the former members in this new forum and just became the newest member. I am from Long Island, NY but am staying with my "niece" in TX where I have come for chemo. On Tuesday, I begin my second cycle of six planned but, except for feeling tired, I am in high spirits and feeling well! My niece is an excellent nurse so I am being well taken care of!
     Jimmy has posted some of the foods I have prepared while staying here. Suz and Louie have threatened to keep me here forever!  They and their two small dogs ( the dogs have chosen to sleep with ME!!!!)  have made me feel right at home. I have been in TX  since May 13 and am not the least bit homesick!
    I remember a program years ago...Life Begins at 80. Well, for me, Life Begins at 71!  I made my first airplane flight, got my first cell phone (I did have a Tracfone), my first iPad, my first debit card, my first trip to Texas, my first chemo.... In my head I am still a sharp and witty 21 but, with a degenerative spine and a walker to get around, I am stuck in the body of someone 124! LOL!  
    I am looking forward to having you for my cooking friend...a great name for this forum!
            Evelyn Read

Goodness, Evelyn but its good to have you here. And I just hope to have your spirit and great outlook, as well as your sense of adventure, when I'm 71!!!

You have been and will continue to be in my thoughts and prayers as you continue your treatment to purge your body of the nasties. Please feel free to chat about anything that comes to mind....we love to have friends stop by whenever the mood strikes.

Great Grandma Evelyn


Thank you, "little brother" Jimmy, for sending my post to the forum and thank you, Beth, for the welcome! I have been enjoying the posts while waiting to become a member. How long has cooking.com been closed? I wonder if there is any way to retrieve some of the old recipes that were posted. I had copied and pasted many of them and printed them. I even bought many folders with the idea of sorting them out into little cookbooks...all Chinese, all beef, all chicken, all appetizers, all soups, etc. Did the members know about this forum or did this forum come after?C It would be nice to be able to let them know that cooking friends does exist. There were many who posted wonderful recipes! Thank you, Jimmy, for telling me about it!

Welcome.. Grandma Evelyn..    I don't think we've virtually met before.. I'm Imelda and I joined CC just before they closed the website

Evelyn, the old cooking.com forum had announced they were closing the site in September or October of 2012 if I remember the date correctly. One of the members, Rich (aka The Mad Hunky) got together with another friend of his and started a forum for all the members to continue to share their cooking experiences and love of food. Along the way one of the newer members decided to use the forum as a chat room for subjects apart from food or cooking and took a distinct dislike for Barb and me. After one particularly nasty exchange Barb and I decided to cut our losses and just stop participating in the conversations. It ceased to be fun and I was afraid my comments were becoming a distraction to the general membership, something I never wanted to have happen.

So, a few weeks later Barb approached me about starting our own forum and we invited the friends you see here, all good people who enjoy sharing our passion for cooking, foods and friendship. We didn't want to suggest to anyone to choose "us" or "them" but rather were invited to stop here whenever the spirit moves them. When I stopped posting at the other forum there was a good deal of discussion about wondering why, but I just didn't want to continue being the distraction I seemed to be.

So, that's the story and I'm sticking to it....lol suffice it to say we just want to have a fun little forum without nastiness and name calling and the such. Many of the original members of the c.com forum had stopped posting, one I truly miss a lot is Highlands (aka - Jean) who was a dear friend who just disappeared. Hopefully we will continue to enjoy each others company for many years....and sharing our ideas for cooking and food in general.

22 Re: A HUGE WELCOME on Sat Jun 29, 2013 8:15 pm

Great Grandma Evelyn


Thank you for sharing that, Beth. I remember Highlands and noticed that there were no more posts from her. Before I realized that Highlands was a female, I thought that it was Mario Batali in disguise! LOL! Silly me! I don't appreciate disrespect either and insensitive posts. Offensive posts should not be part of a friendly cooking forum. Each person is entitled to his/her opinion without forcing it upon others. I remember the GREEN PAN arguments/accusations. I am here to share cooking recipes, ideas, pictures, discussions related to food, diet,
healthful suggestions, medical findings as related to food, food equipment, new gadgets, discussions of the cooking programs, etc.
I filled out my profile...I hope it went through. I am not sure what it means by signing up for a forum and what is FREE FORUM? And where does one find the Smileys or the ability to change the color of the font?

Oh, sure, now you think you can ask technical questions....LOL

I'm not sure how to change the color, but I'll bet Jimmy and Imelda can tell you.

The smileys show up if you touch the yellow smiley face at the top of the posting area.  Barb has been wonderful about finding and downloading a bunch of different ones that pertain to cooking   or show our mood on a particular day  just play around and have fun with them.

24 Re: A HUGE WELCOME on Sat Jun 29, 2013 8:39 pm

Great Grandma Evelyn


And thank you, Imelda. By the time you joined the old forum, I was too busy doing medical research for my cancer so that I would be able to ask the doctors intelligent questions and to be able to know of what they were speaking! Overall, many mistakes have been made in my medical care....the Stage 3 lung cancer was not seen on two routine x-rays and might never have been treated had my niece not transferred me to NY Presbyterian where they found it and put the abdominal problem on hold and addressed the lung cancer, a scan noted that my "prostate gland was grossly unremarkable"...I am a female and they were looking at a residual part of my hysterectomy, the night nurse insisted on giving me Lovenox at night which s a blood thinner when I was hemorrhaging badly during the day. My primary care doctor forgot to rescind the order! Nowadays, one has to be his/her own advocate. Thank God my brain is still working!

25 Re: A HUGE WELCOME on Sat Jun 29, 2013 8:48 pm

Great Grandma Evelyn


Thank you, Beth, but I don't see any yellow smiley at the top of the post or any place where colors can be changed. Perhaps it is because this new equipment is an iPad. I wonder if anyone else with an iPad sees them???? I bet they can be seen on my desk top computer back home...2,000 miles away!
