I am a Mother of six, Grandmother of fifteen and Great-Grandmother of six. I have been married (to the same man) for 56 years and absolutely hated cooking for a long time. My Mother was a fantastic cook and I just couldn't live up to her cooking. Finally decided I could and now love to cook and never tire of trying new recipes. I collect old cookbooks and really don't cook too healthy. Butter, cream etc. always seems to make a recipe taste a little better. My husband doesn't ever balk at trying something new and there haven't been too many things he hasn't liked. Hope to live longer to try many more new recipes.
