My favorite cookbook, well I guess I have 3...The Way to Cook, by Julia Child, the Low Fat Living Cookbook and The California Wine Country Cookbook II. I am retired, due to no longer being able to work because of complications from the Crohns Disease I have lived with since 1971. For a while I didn't even do any cooking or knitting since the inflammatory arthrisis (secondary to the Crohns) was too painful in my hands and feet. Fortunately I am now on a drug protocol that seems to be working, but I am still not able to be as productive as I would like. Still can't work, but I am cooking and knitting again. My husband and I moved to Surprise, Arizona at the end of January 2005. My husband is retired from being in the wine business. I love to cook (and we love to eat) and am always looking for new recipies to try. Due to a slight blood sugar problem my husband has to stick to a diet that eliminates sugars and "bad" carbs, so I have had to modify a lot of the recipes we like. I love Recipezaar, as I have found so many good, healthy recipes here. I hope you enjoy the recipes that I post as much as I have enjoyed the new ones I've found here.
My favorite thing to cook, and a meal I always get requests for, is a pasta dish originally called Penne Pasta with Tomoatos, Gorgonzola and Fresh Herbs. Over the years I have modified the original recipe to suit our changed diet, but still get asked to make this for almost every pot-luck I go to, and it is a great vegetarian recipe. I am also "famous" for my Chicken and Andouille Gumbo, which is modified from a recipe I found in Chef Paul Prudhomme's cookbook entitled "Fork in the Road". My favorite restaurant in Southern California is Pinot Provence, in Arizona we have found a couple new places that top our list: Amuse Bouche is fantastic, and North is high on our list, too.
