I have been falling in love with Beth's budgetbytes:

Not just because it's all pretty cheap but because the recipes she makes ARE SO GOOD.

Foodies, what's up?  It's been a while :) Who's been cooking up new things lately? I've discovered polenta. xx

Hey much as I LOVE the photo up for our group, was wondering if people had other photos...please post and will choose one (or more as the weeks follow) to make our group pretty :)

Any other things people would like to see up here?  Ideas, suggestions?  I am the 'caretaker' of the group as of now and it means I get to do your admin as to what you want the group to let the ideas roll!
