Well, my story on the home page of this site tells you a
little bit about me, so let me tell you how this site started. It was the fall
of 1999 when I decided to do a real estate site for myself. I had read somewhere
that good sites have content other than their main topic. So I invented my
imaginary town here and it was going to have all kinds of areas that have to do
with the home. So if you've wondered why a cooking site has a name like That's
My Home, you'll soon figure it out. I decided to start with the kitchen first
and started adding recipes and shops. That's My Home debuted in November of
1999, with almost 300 recipes. I was busy taking classes everywhere I could find
to learn web design so I could get the real estate part set up. Somewhere along
the way, my love of cooking took over and the real estate section never
I cooked professionally for many years before leaving the
kitchen to sell real estate. I loved the dynamics of the professional kitchen.
My last position was as a pastry chef and I loved being able to play and get
paid for it. Even more fun though is doing this site! The table has now turned
again, I left real estate years ago and this site is my focus.
Originally I had a section here called Holidays that
contained holiday recipes. That section soon outgrew itself and I started Razzle
Dazzle Recipes in 2002. Why Razzle Dazzle? When I owned a bakery my partner
used to say let's "razzle dazzle them" (meaning the customer) so when I needed a
domain name and couldn't find a name I liked that wasn't already taken, Razzle
Dazzle Recipes was born. Okay, I have a strange way of naming things, I know.
I hope you find some recipes to enjoy and come back often.
Happy Cooking and Enjoy!
