I am so excited to be starting this new cooking blog! My plan is to feature the many different recipe concoctions I have come up with over the years. I love, love, love to cook and have plenty of cookbooks (more than I can find places to keep them) to prove it. The problem is, I really don't follow any of the recipes in them. I basically just use them as guidelines and suggestions. A "jumping off point", if you will. Partly it's because I'm stubborn and don't like to read directions, and partly it's because I really, really like to be creative in the kitchen! I hope this blog can and will inspire you to become a creative cooker too. After all it's just food, how scary can it be?
Most of the recipes you'll find here are my own. However, from time to time I will also post wonderful recipes that I can not take credit for. I will always let you know which is which as I will not take credit for something that isn't my original creation.
With that as background, let us begin the food festivities...I can almost hear the dinner bell ringing.
