I Love the Betty Crocker Book it got me started with cooking being I didnt know how. I try my best though I don't always have the time or ambition after working to do any major cooking, and I hate the cleanup. On weekends is the time I try to make more "impressive" foods if we are home. Of course, also in the winter I am more apt to cook because it gets dark so early I can't be outside! My husband has not had too many complaints, he's just happy he doesnt have to eat hamburger helper or any of that stuff. He says he likes that I try new things all the time because all he makes is the same stuff (you know meat and potatoes). Well that is why I am here to find even more ways to cook things differently.
