Since I am retired, I enjoy trying new recipes. My husband asks, "So, what is the guinia pig meal today?" Since we have three homes in three states, my Allrecipes recipe box is a lifesaver for me for accessing my favorite recipes, no matter which house I am at.
My favorite things to cook
I like cooking old style, downhome type meals. I also enjoy the challenge of using leftovers to make entire new meals. I like to check out the newspaper for grocery specials, and come up with creative ways to prepare the food on special for the week.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I learned to cook from my mom, who had a family of eight to feed on a very limited budget. Many of my favorite recipes came from her.
