I come from a family of great cooks. Both my mom and stepmom were extraordinary cooks, and my dad was pretty good in the kitchen as well. I started cooking when I was 7 or 8 years old. My mom was a student in a culinary program that featured single topic cookbooks by Better Homes & Gardens. I used to pour over those books, which I still have, planning the dinner parties I would have in the future! I loved being in the kitchen learning how to duplicate the recipes that were enjoyed by all. My love for cooking continues to this day. I usually cook 4 or 5 times a week and always try a new recipe from my vast collection of recipes or cookbooks. I think I have over 200 cookbooks and have finally come to terms with the fact that I can't buy anymore because I don't have anywhere to put them! Since I have so many cooking resources, there's always something new being prepared in my kitchen, so I don't have a regular weekly rotation of recipes. I cook whatever sounds or looks good!
