I love to cook. I have always liked to cook but everything I would make in the oven would burn on the outside and be raw in the middle. Come to find out my heating element in the oven was out. I got a new one and the oven is working perfectly. I also bought an oven thermometer to see what the true temperature is. I love it. I recently went to Dumas and looked through my grandmothers' old recipes and found a bunch of good ones, just like the ones she use to make when I was a kid. I've been trying to cook more than I use to. It's healthier and cheaper. It also helps that I finally got over my sinus infection that I had for over 3 months and I feel like cooking. I also love to collect cookbooks. My aunt Jan recently gave me a cookbook with tons of good recipes in it. I was so excited when I got it that I couldn't wait to get home and try some of the recipes out. I am always looking for good recipes so if you have any I would love to try them out!!!!
