I don't know - both could potentially kill you!


As does the cake - the mere act of living is potentially fatal 😉

I joined in 2003, but could only find one of my early 2010 images, which I didn't stick a candle in it and lit it.  It would today be the Happy Birthday Chicken and Dumplings photo.  I remember this Chicken and Dumplings Cook-Off and while this photo is far from appetizing, as I remember it now, this was pretty darn delicious. Happy Birthday Gully!

Happy 20th birthday, Gully! I've learned a ton and made good friends in my 18.3 years here.

Fresh peach pie and homemade vanilla ice cream with some wild raspberries stirred in. Served on a plate that's older than me and Gully combined.

Plums baked in port.

And the best I could do for a candle on short notice. 😇

When people ask how I got started making chocolates, I always tell them the simple answer is "eGullet."  The amount of information people share without cost on this forum is amazing, and I never cease learning more all the time.  In the celebratory photo below, all of the items, whether decoration or filling, reflect some of what I have learned here:

Yes, a “personal” seedless watermelon, cut into more or less 1/2” bits. It became my evening snack, topped with a little maple smoked kosher salt (after the LED tea candle was plucked out, of course). The personal melons have been pretty consistently good this year.

Oh, good!  I can "like" it then.  I thought it was raw salmon at first and passed it by.  😁

I will celebrate my 15th Gully anniversary next month!  I lurked for  good year before joining, but that doesn't count.  I haven't posted much in the last few years but reading the forums is part of my daily routine.  I love you guys!  So many of you feel like family to me just from your posts, and I have learned and grown so much as a lover of food and cook.  Raise a glass to many many many more years!

 

eta:  My favorite thread is

I go back and re-read it every so often when I need a laugh.  😄

I whistfully mentioned how I missed sushi. Truly horrified, she told me "you city folk eat the strangest things!", and offered me a freshly fried chitterling!
