Hi, my names Cass and I have a cook book addiction!
When I get a new cook book, I hide it on top of the fridge until the kids have gone to bed, then I pour myself a nice chilled glass of wine, turn the TV off, lock the door and settle down to spend some time getting to know the new addition to my little cook book family. I read it from cover to cover, turning each page slowly, while imagining myself in my own kitchen preparing and serving the delicious creations that I’m reading about.
Then, when I’m finished, I place it lovingly on my cook book shelf where it stays forevermore, gathering dust. You see, the problem is, as much as I love cook books, I rarely cook things from them as I don’t really like fancy or fussy food and I have very little technical ability in the kitchen. I also have the worlds fussiest eaters in my husband and Master Frugal….
What I like to make and what my family like to eat are the sort of home cooked meals that you remember from your childhood, things like macaroni cheese, spag bol and casseroley type dinners. I remember my mam making all sorts of delicious meals but unfortunately, she died before I really took an interest in cooking so she didn’t really have the chance to pass her recipes down to me, the way I want to do with Miss Frugal. So, if I can’t have my mam’s recipes, I thought you guys might be willing to share one of yours 😉
Thanks to the brilliant instructions I found on Violet Posy’s blog, I’ve managed to make a snazzy little badge:
So, seeing as I’ve made you all a lovely badge to use, do you think you could share one of your recipe’s with me 😉 If you do, leave a comment below to your post and I’ll add them all into one big post when there’s a few….
Thank you on behalf of me and my family (who are all bored with our regular meal plan)
