A Really Big Recipe Box

Hello, friends & family~
Welcome to my RECIPE BOX blog! This is a little blog I created from the inspiration I got after watching the delightful motion picture Julie & Julia.
I wanted to create a place where anyone and everyone can exchange great recipes, entertaining ideas, and all their cooking successes and failures. New topics will be posted daily and I hope others will post their comments or ideas on these topics!
Each month there will be a different cooking/ingredient that is featured. I hope readers will enter their recipes and blog about their ideas regarding the different topics/monthly themes featured. Make sure you attach your name and city were you reside at the bottom of your recipe and photos if possible!
