This is a picture of my recipe book. I got it for Christmas, and I'm already filling it with recipes! The best ones are the family recipes. My favorite is my great grandmother's bread, but I also have her peanut butter fudge recipe. It's amazing. I was already warned by my mom and aunt to never give it out. Apparently my great gram was very protective of it. When I look thru it I realize that most of the book is going to be baked goods!
I also got a crock pot for Christmas. It will hopefully help me balance out the baked goods. xD I started cooking a pot roast in it this morning. I can't wait for dinner! My mom found tons of crock pot recipes for me to use, so I am going to be keeping the resolution to eat more home made meals. Cooking and feeding people is a lot of fun. I think I'm going in the right direction by going to school for restaurant management. Only nine more months until I leave for NECI! I'm both terrified and excited, but now I'm almost sure that I'm making the right choice.
Where do your recipes come from? Does your family have any recipes handed down for generations? Other than family recipes, I actually get a lot from here. She writes books about a caterer who solves murders, how could she not include tons of recipes? I think I'm going to go and make that fudge now. =)
