Absolutely love to cook! My Mom passed the apron on to me when I was about 13 years old, taught me all she knew, then I was introduced to the world of cookbooks. Forty years later, here I am . . over 1,300 cookbooks collected, and an avid Recipezaar fan of eight years. My favorite part of this site, other than the obvious recipes, are the recipe reviews. Thanks for expanding my dining repetoire, Recipezaar!!
