Cooking Thursday - #1 January 6

A new year and new recipes to try and to share with our family and friends.

I've decided to make good use of my cookbooks and starting next menu cycle, I'm going to concentrate on one of the cookbooks in my collection and make just recipes from it.  I'm excited to see which will become family favorites and which I'll probably never make again.

I promise only to share the good ones with you guys :)
