My favorite cookbook is the ever trusted Better Homes and Gardens Cook Book stuffed in the shelves in of every womans kitchen for nearly 100yrs. I borrowed it from a friend-needless to say, I kept the cookbook and ditched the friend! LOL Baking is NOT my forte, however, after 20yrs in the torture chamber, I'm proud to say that I CAN bake a mean chocolate chip cookie and some fabulous breads during the holidays! Anything more than that & you're on your on for sure. My most popular dish w/the family is my Southern Potato Soup recipe. It is a family recipe. Please enjoy it's comfort in the Winter months.
