Do you love food or just love to try new things? Shaking things up can be great if you’re tired of the same old same routine. I fell in love with cooking when I was 16 and got my first job cooking. Who doesn’t like good tasting food anyways?
Lately, I’ve been in the kitchen trying new recipes, and some of them are just too good to pass up letting other people know about them. The recipes on the list are various ones I’ve collected off the net or out of cookbooks and thought they were too amazing.
