Cooking Recipes – Building A Collection

Cooking recipes are undoubtedly the most widely used written instructions on the planet. We all love to eat and most importantly we all need to eat to sustain life.

Recipes are treated like the treasures that they are, passed down from one generation to the next. Many of us who cook have many favorites from many different places and cultures, and we always have room for more.

Cooking is a skill that I learned as at the age of eight and there are indeed some recipes that I adore and I’m always looking for more and willing to share.

Be sure to sign up for my free newsletter “The Cooking Partner” for great tips to go along with all of these great recipes and receive a free downloadable cookbook called Tasty Freezer Recipes with 30 great recipes of foods that you can cook now and freeze the rest for later.

What just may be one of the world's healthiest foods?
