Saving the Soups...

Ok, I guess there's more than one of you out there who would like to access the recipes I've been making (this far,) and writing about from time to time here on my blog...  I'll be happy to post titles with links, when there is a link... but then there's still the issue of those I've found in one of my many cookbooks, and how to deal with them...  At a glance, I'd have to say cookbooks are the majority this far!  Would you like me to type out the recipes for each?  Shall I wait, and do so ONLY for those requested?

Give me some advice here, folks... Many of you are senior members compared to me, and often I overlook or flat out miss "tools" that are available as a member!  I most surely will investigate, but I'm totally open to suggestions!

So, I guess it's time to start tossing me ideas, and requests for particular recipes...  If you want them "all," I certainly can accomodate, I'm just not sure how best to do so, or how long it may take... 

Well, I might just do some surfing... some of the recipes I've pulled from cookbooks may be availiable via the web, so that may greatly reduce the issues!

Till we figure all of this out, be well all...!

Why not just add them to your recipe box?

Thanks, King! I'd never realized that I could put a recipe in my file box that had not been posted on the website/reviewed yada yada... I do believe you've provided me with the answer! Be well, friend!

You can also add a weblink to your recipe box from any site also. If you have a scanner with your printer you might be able to scan recipes from actual cookbooks into word and then copy/paste into your cookbook. Don't make yourself any more work than you already have. Just citing the source would also work. Thanks, Stevie!

About Me
Started cooking many years ago, and learned as I went. First meal may have been "steak & chips" at age 15, in Birmingham England, where I lived for several years. Mostly grew up in MI, transplanted to the desert 30yrs ago, or so. Favorite cookbook is "Better Homes", also enjoy "Great British Cooking, a well kept secret." Hesitate to call myself "expert," but friends do rave...
My favorite things to cook
Italian has been my "specialty" for some time, and my "signature" meal is Lasagne, salad, garlic bread, which I first made 20yrs ago... from SCRATCH, very first time I made it. (Never again, folks...) Now start with a big jar of sauce!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanks to my heritage, I have enjoyed trying foods from different cultures. We still have beer battered fish, and chips of course; ground meat dishes often, chicken occasionally, pork too. I would love to submit a bean dip recipe, however, my ex who gave me the original has passed, and I have no way to verify that it didn't come from another source! I also enjoy British cooking (with a few yankee twists) and once made Plum puddings, also known as Christmas puddings, as far as I know... what an ordeal that was, but well worth the effort. Today, there is mail order!
My cooking triumphs
Greatest triumph was not too long ago, when I held a sit down dinner for 12, Lasagne being the entree. It was a fund raiser I chose to sponsor, and am proud to say that "we" raised over $1000 from that meal alone, minimum donation being $25. All proceeds collected were donated; my partner and I provided the meal and beverages.
My cooking tragedies
MEATLOAF of all things! Went through a stage of "winging" it each time, and I pulled one after another out of the oven that were almost unedible. As yet, not too big on baking... no sweet tooth here! Have dabbled, but find doughs/pastries especially difficult, perhaps as it's 90 degrees in my kitchen much of the year.
