I am happily retired for several years now here in Scottsdale, AZ after teaching school (special education) for a number of years. For fun I collect recipes and quotations. As my husband says, "it's all paper!" I have assembled some of my tried and true recipes into personal cookbooklets that I use for gifts for brides in the family. I enjoy organizing them this way. My favorite cookbook is a family reunion cookbook I compiled for my husband's family. I put in their treasured recipes and numerous anecdotes. I think I treasure it more for the anecdotes, to tell the truth. I also love to do plastic canvas crafting, especially of Christmas -themed subjects.
I began cooking for my family while still in my teens. Seems like I have always
liked to cook. As to my favorite foods, I have adopted most of my husband's favorite recipes from his growing-up days: chicken and dumplin's , chicken-fried steak, American chop suey, etc. (He is a true southerner--I'm from a suburb of Chicago.) I think I have to say, now, that my most favorite recipes to cook are the quick and easy type with limited ingredients. My favorite restaurant is any one where I can sit down and get served!! I lean toward Mexican food restaurants and I used to love the Bohemian restraurants back in my old hometown Don't find too many of those in AZ, however!
