I have always loved to cook and now that I look back I realize that I'm somewhat of a perfectionist. Since I found Recipe Zaar, I have relaxed a lot and found my love of cooking again. I don"t have a favorite cookbook. I do like to go to many different sources and mentally compare recipes before I prepare a dish. I also read reviews. I take instructions that I find and combine it with foods I have on hand to create a great and tasty dish.
