I live in the Sandhills of NC,known for its golf courses. My favorite cookbooks are ones compiled by churches & civic organizations.I have a son who is a chef. My most treasured compliment came from him. He asked if the cheesecake he made & served in the restaurant was as good as the recipe I use. I enjoy cooking & reading. A pet peeve:People who say they don't like a certain food when they haven't even tasted it. Recipezaar is wonderful!! If I can think about an ingredient I can find a recipe for it.
