I live in NW Indiana, near Chicago, retired more than 3 years ago. I'm on our local school board and play alto sax in a community band. I can't choose a favorite cookbook, because I have about 20 feet of shelves with nothing BUT cookbooks. One of the "ideas" listed for this was, "If you have a month off--no work, no responsibilities...." I've had the no work, but the responsibilities are still there. And what I do is put things off until tomorrow because there's plenty of time. Even if there isn't. One of my pet peeves is not being able to find things in my kitchen. Since my son moved back in, and he cooks, and he uses my kitchen...I'm peeved a lot.
I like to cook things that I can throw in the crockpot or oven. No pot-watching and no standing over a hot stove - a real plus if you have bad knees. There are several recipes my kids insist on when they're all here - and keep asking for, because they keep losing them: my mother's chicken tetrazzin and dilly bread; calico beans, which I make instead of Mom's baked beans because no matter what I do, my sons say they don't taste the same; and two sausage appetizers, one from a cousin's husband and the other a variation of that.
