Thanks to all of you who have taken the time to put up recipes I have really expanded my cookbook and made some truly fabulous foods that I never would have found otherwise. I thank you all for saving me from the drudgery of making and eating the same old thing over and over! I am SO glad I found this site and it's sure to be one of my favorites forever now! I have always loved to cook and bake and would rather stay at home and make dinner than go out somewhere. When I do go out to a restaurant I find myself thinking that I could make the same thing at home much better thanks to Zaar chef's!!! I think it's nice to share so I am adding some of my favorite recipes here and there and I thank all of you in advance who try them. I absolutely love to read mystery and suspense novels and if a little romance is mixed in it doesn't hurt ;) either. I also love to sew - no clothes though. My biggest project that I currently want to tackle is making a sweater blanket for my bed. I've been collecting wool sweaters for a couple years now and just have to make myself cut out the pieces and put them together. I know the end result will be beautiful I just have to find the time and not cook for a few days - yikes!!!
