I do not consider myself a great cook. I am an average cook who looks for recipes that taste great so others will think I am a better cook than I am! My family consists of five/six adults, depending on who is home any given day. I like to bake more than anything. My favorite recipes are usually ones I get from someone else or off the internet-my favorite cookbook is one our extended family all did together several years ago. Otherwise I don't get much use from cookbooks. I play piano and enjoy scrapbooking. Unfortunaly I spend too little time at either as I work fulltime.
