I’m not aging, I’m marinating!

A little while ago, I celebrated a birthday. Sometimes I forget it’s coming since it is so soon after Christmas, everyone is just coming down off the holiday rush and most times I’d really like it to sneak by.

Then in the 90’s the world exploded with internet recipes and I printed and put in 3 ring binders, added to MasterCook software, joined and then started my own recipeContinue reading “Quit saving, start cooking!”
