While growing up, I have spent countless hours watching my mother prepare meals. Whether it be for our family of four, or for more
elaborate occasions which included preparation for 5-12 people. My mother stayed at home with us while Dad worked outside the home. She
has a knack of knowing which spices goes with which foods for which seasons.
I cannot cook or bake as well as my mother, however she has instilled in me a love of cooking and baking. I am one of those ladies who
borrows a pen and paper to copy a recipe down in a Dr.'s office or while waiting for my car to be fixed. Once the internet opened up to
me, and I found a large number of sites, I could not be stopped LOL
Over the years, I have accumulated literally thousands of recipes. Some are hand written, others are from magazines and the largest
portion of recipes have been printed right from the computer. I cannot say where each and every recipe came from and I do NOT claim them to be my
own. I did however, point out if my mother, grandmother, family member or friend used a particular recipe.
This site is in part, an accumulation of my life. As well as my mother's cooking, I had the benefit of my grandmother's
cooking as well. She was Hungarian, and let me tell you, I have eaten a lot of wonderful food growing up !!!
If I can state from where I found the recipe, I will. If I cannot state where I found the recipe, I will catagorize it as unknown.
When a recipe is catagorized as adapted, it is a recipe that myself and/or my husband has changed to suit our tastes.
This site is a hobby for me. It is a place for me to store all the recipies I have gathered over the years and I continually add
more when I find some that look good. I hope these recipes bring back some wonderful memories for others who share the same love of
cooking good food as I do.
If you have suggestions or corrections please email me.
