I love to cook. I love to bake. I have since I was a kid. Can’t honestly say my Mom taught me because she was English and well…. you know.
I was always confused with people who took cooking classes. I figured if you can read, you can cook. Yeah I know there are those who would say it’s a talent. Doug and I would be a lot thinner if I didn’t, I’m sure. We do eat out but not much. We eat out when it’s a convenience and when it’s with friends.
I have several cook books but mostly I use the bible of all cook books – Betty Crocker. My other cook book is a collection of recipes I have saved either from the internet or from friends.
Now I am going to make you hungry.
Lemon Meringue Pie – a family favourite
Cookies – Chocolate Chocolate Chip and Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip
There are definitely things I do differently in my relatively small kitchen. I make sure that I put ingredients away as soon as I’ve used them. I wash out and reuse measuring cups, spoons etc as I go along. I rarely bake or cook one thing. I figure if I am going to mess up the kitchen I may as well do two or more things at once.
