My Mom didn't like more than one cook in the kitchen so I learned to cook after I lived on my own. I basically taught myself. I never liked the same old stuff so I had started to experiment with recipes. I found loads of recipes to play with through my days, even before the internet (grin). 6.5 years ago I met a man who loves to cook as much as me. We have been having loads of fun with the recipes that we find. Maybe someday we can publish a if you want it, we have it cookbook.
