I haven't used many cookbooks although I had over 400 at one time. I read them like one would read a good book. Loved the pictures! Only 2 of us, but I always end up making too much of anything. Love to make mixes to keep on hand. Easier to fix something in a hurry. No salad is complete without avacado and homemade Ranch. Hubby says I use every pot, pan and dish in the kitchen when I cook. He knows--he does the dishes! Ha Ha!
My favorite things to cook
