Since 1997, you’ve been coming to BarnesandNoble.com to discuss everything from Stephen King to writing to Harry Potter. You’ve made our site more than a place to discover your next book: you’ve made it a community. But like all things internet, BN.com is growing and changing. We've said goodbye to our community message boards—but that doesn’t mean we won’t still be a place for adventurous readers to connect and discover.

Now, you can explore the most exciting new titles (and remember the classics) at the Barnes & Noble Book Blog. Check out conversations with authors like Jeff VanderMeer and Gary Shteyngart at the B&N Review, and browse write-ups of the best in literary fiction. Come to our Facebook page to weigh in on what it means to be a book nerd. Browse digital deals on the NOOK blog, tweet about books with us,or self-publish your latest novella with NOOK Press. And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

Re: Introduce Yourself

Hello My name is James and I currently live in Santa Monica, a section of Los Angeles, CA. I love to cook, especially baking and delicate stuff. I'm glad to be on here to meet new people and network with other. I find it interesting how people cook and the variation of their creativity is what I'm looking forward to. I would like to learn from other as well.

Re: Introduce Yourself

Hello everyone!

 

I just graduated from college and so am on my own, cooking for the first time! I grew up baking - cookies, pies, breads, cupcakes - but had never really cooked until this year. After a number of disastrous smoke alarm fiascos, I seem to be gradually getting the hang of it... I eat almost anything and love to experiment, but tend to prefer simpler dishes with clean flavors. 

 

I'd love any cookbook or recipe suggestions you all may have for someone just starting out - especially one that lets you make meals for one or two rather than 4 or 6.  Single pot cooking is also a plus - I am not a fan of doing dishes...

 

Thanks!

Re: Introduce Yourself

This is Joan. I write the EAT SMART series of culinary guidebooks. So far I have written guides to the food of Brazil, Turkey, Indonesia, Mexico, Poland, Morocco, India, Peru and Sicily. My next guidebook will cover the cuisine of Norway.  I also lead culinary tours and recently returned from leading a tour to Turkey followed by one to Sicily. Obviously, food is my passion. I love all food books but especially like books covering food history.
