Barb A.

I learned to cook from several talented women - my Dad's mom was an excellent cook, and I am thrilled that I have some of her treasured recipes. My mother let me cook in the kitchen from a young age, and I instilled a love of food in my son (who likes to cook as well). I am a cookbook and recipe collector - I have more than 2000 cookbooks, and read them avidly for ideas and new recipes. I started to write down recipes in a binder when I was 15, and there are some excellent recipes included in this resource. Perhaps it was my love of cooking that led me to a Home Economics degree and a career in nutrition.
