On the side bar are
1) as stated, links to great cooking sites
2) recipes that are allegedly family recipes
3) recipes I’ve found in cookbooks and altered to my own lazy purposes
4) recipes that I’ve found on other websites that I would like to keep and find this to be a convenient place. (There was a triple layer chocolate truffle cake recipe on a website which I shall not name that is now lost forever… and it saddens me greatly)
5) Fun and “exciting” cooking type gatherings that have occured.
6) and recipes I’ve found and am marking down for future trial.
