Every aspect of my exsitence is a creative endeavor. My motto is Wear what you want, & walk like you mean it. Even if it's the best recipe, I'll usually toss a pinch of something in not on the card. I don't know if it's because I'm adventuresome, or if I just want to make the recipe my own. But fortune favors the brave. My favorite cookbook is this classic Betty Crocker that my mom was given sometime between 78-83. It has been tried & true. Cooking runs in the family. My grandmother makes scalloped potates that are amazing. And my sister bakes in her free time.
