My name is Patricia Hamon Fulda and you can find me on Facebook (click on profile in the upper left hand corner of the page). I am an enthusiastic cook who started to cook when I was 10 years old (I'm 69 now). My entire family cooked and when I got married, at age 20, I knew how to make three recipes: Fish in Sweet Sour Sauce, Chicken Paprika, and Croissants, from scratch (I used Tante Marie's French Cooking; Julia Child didn't exist). If you are using herbs and spices in your cooking I heartily recommend MySpiceSage.com. They have wholesale prices for small quantities such as 1oz., usually around $3.00 to $3.75, which is enough to have on hand, or 4 oz., which is enough for any human purpose. They have free shipping and free return shipping if you aren't completely satisfied. They also have an incredible number of spices, from North Africa to France to India (I recently counted seven masalas). Happy eating!
