I LOVE cookbooks– I have several hundred. I especially love ones with pictures!
But does that make me a fabulous cook? Do I IMPRESS my family and friends because I have an extraordinary collection of recipes and resources to draw upon when I decide to make a meal?
No. Not even close!
And to be honest (I’m not going to lie) when I want to cook, my first move is … to go to my computer! (Which by the way, hangs out directly under the cupboard that has “my cookbook library”). Now, I find that my wonderful compendium of pictures and ingredients collects dust and neglect as I go to my “tried and true” or “borrowed and proven” recipes stored in my old recipe box in my pantry.
So when I decided that I wanted to start a blog, I wanted to start one that featured my favorites, or the recipes that get the response, “Can I get your recipe for that?”
You see, I remember when I was a newly wed, I would try out many cookbook recipes and be disappointed, not only with the taste results, but also with the fact that I had wasted $$ on a creation that we had to swallow only so we didn’t waste any of our meager food budget. My lesson learned? I began to ask women around me for their best pie recipe, or how they made their wonderful Mac n’ Cheese! (Never mind that my wonderful mother in law shared her Mac n’ Cheese version with me but neglected to tell me to boil the macaroni first– no wonder the top was crunchy!) Obviously I was more than a beginner– I was 100% CLUELESS!
Fast forward 38 years—to today. Here is my launch of what I hope will be one your favorite sites to visit: only my Best recipes!
