Hopefully this post is ok and is not too "self-serving" for chowhound's rules.
I'm a long-time chowhound enjoyer, and it's going to be tough not to take chowhound's great restaurant recommendations for a year. But my wife and I have started a project at www.onewholeyear.com , in which we try making pretty much everything we eat from scratch at home.
So, chowhound, we'd appreciate responses regarding your favorite foods or recipes that can be made basically from scratch. Quick-to-make recipes would especially be welcomed here. We'd love to try out a lot of your recipes as we go through the year- we're going to need as many as we can get!
