    All,

    Just a brief announcement that ChefTalk will be moving to our new home this Wednesday. You should notice almost no down time, but just a different look and feel. We started in 1999 and here we are on our 5-6th move? Hard to believe hope you all enjoy the platform hopefully it will be a bit more updated and faster for all of you.

    Nicko

    That's hilarious.. I didn't catch that first time through.

    We're going to end up uncultured now without downtown. /img/vbsmilies/smilies/biggrin.gif

    Hello all, the move is really happening today, 7/10 at 10 AM Pacific / 1 PM Eastern. We should experience very little down time as we move but if there's any issues, this thread and Announcement area will be open to posting, even when the site is on read-only mode. 

    Once the new site is ready to go, I'll be posting some quick how-to guides to help everyone find their way around the new site. Thanks for being so patient!

    Helloooooo! I go away for a while, and you make the place look mahvelous! Maybe it was the batch of cookie dough I whipped up today in my KA mixer, but I thought a stop here was overdue. But not a day goes by that I don't think of what this place has added to the quality of my life. Life's been very busy, including a completely new kitchen. ;)

    Missed you too, Kuan! Garrett must be in college by now....
    We've been busy doing work for our synagogue, but also remodeling our house. Here's our new kitchen, just finished in June.

    Hi Ann,

    It is so great to have you stop by and say hello! Your kitchen looks amazing. Hope we see more of you in our new home. We are no longer with Huddler or Wikia we are completely on our own once again.

    Nicko

    @mezzaluna I am curious about how you mounted your dishwasher up higher. I really like that idea so that you don't have to bend down so much. Did you come up with that yourself or see that somewhere else?
