About me: I collect cookbooks and love to cook and try new recipes. I tested recipes for Leite's Culinaria for almost eight years. I learned to cook from many good southern cooks including my Mom, Dad, several Aunts and my Grandmothers. My children and husband also like to cook and try new foods and recipes. My son still lives with us but our daughter is married. She often visits to cook with me. We are adventuresome eaters willing to try new things.

Challah French Toast : page 187

A great version of French Toast. I made this one for hubby after seeing Ina make it on one of her shows a few years ago. We have since made it a couple times more and it's delicious.

Chicken Noodle Soup : page 31

Roasting the chicken in this recipe really gives the soup a great additional flavor. This is a great chicken noodle soup.

Parmesan Roasted Asparagus : page 46

I made this recipe for part of our Easter 2014 family supper. My daughter said I'm going to have to make this for myself sometime. My sister, daughter and I loved it and hubby said it was pretty good. Easy and delicious way to roast asparagus. Ina serves it as an appetizer but it also makes a great side dish.
