As per the H.com Cookbook thread, I'll start by posting some categories. If anyone would like to add some or if you have any suggestions, please feel free to contribute. Once I have some feedback I'll post separate threads for each category as Melech suggested where you can start posting recipes (with pictures).

If it's ok with everyone, once we have the categories in order, I (or if someone wants to volunteer their time) will go through the cooking/recipes threads and organize the recipes according to its category.

Comments? Suggestions?

If anyone is seriously interested, please express your thoughts so this project will be a success.

Thanks.

I think Bread and cakes should be separate

For desserts, there should be sub-categories cakes/bars/cookies/frozen/etc.

What goes under appetizers? stuff like gefilte fish?

What about a section for substitutions?

Otherwise, list looks good to me. :)

You got it.

I think we should start with all deserts and then work from there. Too many categories may be overwhelming. What do you think?

If I'm not mistaken I think it's side dishes.

Sure.

Great. Thanks for your input.

There should be a subcategory for dairy pastries.

Only for the pastries?

There may be a need for a miscellaneous section.

Now I'm wondering if anyone makes edible intimates with a hechsher.

Ok

There should be a subcategory for dairy pastries.

I think Amber said we're doing all desserts and then breaking it up

Appetizers are what you serve at the beginning of the meal. Side dishes are served along with the entree. But some appetizers make good side dishes and vice versa.

Good idea.

I think it makes most sense.

Ah, right. I combined the two.

Right. Appetizers are what you nibble on with cocktails until dinner is served. I really think that appetizers and side dishes should be separated or the category will be huge. Any side dish that can be used for an appetizer can be noted in the recipe description.

Great start, Amber.

Agreed. The two aren't remotely the same (you wouldn't serve a big chunk of potato kigel on a platter with cheese and crackers).

Oh, I totally would. :p
