I enjoy cooking & baking enough that I really like reading recipes. But now I do it on the internet and will be donating my 2 boxes of recipe books to the local bazaar. I have 6 children with families of their own now. When we have a family camping trip or extended get-together everyone signs up to prepare a meal because they all like to cook too. At one time there was a competition to see whose was best, but it got too hard for them to judge.
