Excuse the mess – our website is under construction but we’ll have it up and running shortly – as soon as I figure out this blogging thing. It’s a bit intimidating, I must say.
My purpose in starting this blog was born of a desire to write a cookbook. I started gathering all my favorite recipes – at first I had them in word documents on my pc. Then I started to enter them in a recipe program called Shop n Cook. That was fine but hard to share because one needs to download a recipe reader to use it. I thought of printing and sending out hard copies – but that’s so – well – old fashioned! Besides, for those like me who travel a lot or are trying to downsize the cookbook library it’s just one more pile of papers, one more book to deal with. I figure if it’s online in a blog, then it’s available for everyone to see. If you want to print a particular recipe you can do that.
I have so many wonderful recipes from so many sources and I wanted to put them all in one place and make them accessable to all of my family, friends and anyone else who may be interested. I’d also like to add cooking hints and tips, household hints and tips and frugal living ideas I’ve been collecting and trying. Add to that my side hobby of making crocheted and knitted items – well, lets just say I think this is the best forum for all of that.
I hope you enjoy reading this as much as I am having putting it together. Be sure to e-mail me with any ideas and suggestions. Send your favorite, tried and true family recipes. As I get a chance, I’ll make them and post them here to add to the collection. I ask that you please include some information about the recipe. How did you get it (Grandma’s cookbook), what you like about it (brings back a childhood memory), and anything else you want to say. You’ll get the idea as I post some of my recipes. Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see you here again soon!
