I love to eat. And I sometimes love to cook. I am in no way trained in cooking or baking. Most of my recipes are super simple, and often I have consulted with someone else to make sure that I am on the right track when modifying or creating something. A lot of the recipes that I share,
I consider “family recipes.” This does not mean my family created them, but the source may have gone un-noted down the line.
I never intend to pass these recipes off as my own, but there is no way of knowing where they came from except for my grandma’s blue cheese vinaigrette recipe.
I’m pretty sure she stole that from her neighbor. But I don’t know her name, and I’m pretty sure she doesn’t have a website. It will not hurt my feelings if you think of a better way to make a dish.
Make it your own. Also, I am not responsible for pounds gained or calories consumed. (Helpful hint: my grandfather always told me that it removes the calories if you freeze your chocolate. You’re welcome).
