I recently replaced a vital piece of kitchen equipment - my crockpot. The previous version had given up the ghost - it was no longer cooking properly. A pretty inexpensive replacement, we got a new crockpot and all is well again.
While we had a truly marvelous family Thanksgiving dinner, it was not at my house and I missed out on any leftovers. So Sunday morning I threw my Mexican Beef Stew in the crockpot and drove my family crazy with the amazing smell all day while I went to work at the quilt shop. But then I was able to come home to this delicious meal!
My MIL and I have talked for years about creating a family cookbook of all our favorite recipes. I have a pile of loose recipes and I'm constantly digging through them, searching for this one or that one. I went searching online and found several websites that help you create and publish your own cookbook, so I'm trying Tastebook to create a recipe book for my family and perhaps a couple more for gifts.
If you are interested in seeing my family recipes, comment here and I will send you a Tastebook invite. It's free to join and allows you to share recipes with friends and family. You can also order a published cookbook, but that's entirely up to you, no obligation! I hope you don't feel like I'm promoting this website - I really have no personal stake in it at all, I just thought it would be a fun thing to do and I would love to hear any of your family favorites - I am always on the lookout for yummy new foods to try!
