I, like probably everyone else on here, LOVE to cook. I am responsible for cooking for 7 people each night with no help on what to make. No one ever says "oh, this sounds good tonight" so it all falls to me. I joined in hopes of getting some great new recipes and ideas on what to make for dinner! The hardest part of sharing recipes is going to be telling people how much of what to put in the dish ... like many cooks out there, I just add this and that until it turns out yummy!
My grandmother was my biggest cooking influence growing up. She cooked every night with such love - the best ingredient of all. My second biggest influence was her sister, my great aunt. Growing up in New Jersey, I used to love going down the shore to her house. I had quite a bit of family around and there were always friends dropping by at meal times. Everyone would sit around their huge table and enjoy the fruits of her all day cooking!
