This is my attempt to keep all the recipes I try (including family recipes passed on from my mom and grandmothers) in one area so I never lose track of this stuff again and eventually have a record of recipes that I want to continue making in the future.
I prefer recipes that are relatively quick and easy without a million steps or having to make everything from scratch. To me, tasting good is more important than a perfect presentation. However, sometimes or more like when I'm in some moods, it's fun to try a complex dish, a Julia Child recipe, or baking something using no prepared ingredients.
I mostly cook by myself as my husband isn't big in the kitchen except for his famous french toast or BBQ skills. I like to use organic ingredients when possible but living an hour from a big grocery store means each week I have to pre-plan really well.
With the holiday season coming up, I'm excited to record here some of my favorite recipes as well as try out a whole bunch of new ones.
“The only real stumbling block is fear of failure.
In cooking you've got to have a what-the-hell attitude.” -Julia Child
Well, what the heck then, here we go...
