I live in the very most southwestern corner of New York state in Chautauqua. It is a touristy place with Lake Erie and Chautauqua Lake to draw people in. Also, for those interested in a more intellectual vacation, the Chautauqua Institute is wonderful. The first think I remember cooking was hamburgers for my family after my youngest sister was born...I was 7, and of course, there was close supervision. I have always enjoyed cooking, but LOVE to bake. My pet peeves include when people bring an excellent dish to a big get-together, but they will not share the recipe because it is "secret"...
