    I save so much money by cooking at home. According to friends and family I have gotten quite good at it as well. I like to eat out on special occasions.

    1. What are your favorite meals to make Casee?

      1. Casee says:

        I recently did a pork loin with orange sauce. I don’t like beef that much but will cook it for family and friends. My favorites are vegetarian meals. I do like meat but I find that eating it too often seems to not agree with my digestion. I really enjoy the recipes from America’s Test Kitchen on PBS and the website they have. Over the years through practice and lots of mistakes I have went from someone who could ruin boiled water to a capable cook. I find eating out to be stressful at times. But for the special occasions I make an exception.

  2. I do cook most meals at home because the ingredients are usually better but it I’d nice to go out now and then. Love reading cookery books…especially old cookery writers like Elizabeth David, Fanny Farmer and Mrs Beeton but I seldom experiment.

    1. I’m surprised you don’t experiment Bridget. I only know of Fannie, so I hope I can find the other cooks at the library.

      1. Mrs Beeton’s book of Household Management was first published in in 1861 and is still in print. It has been revised countless times and presents a fascinating history of domestic life as well as excellent recipes. I can recommend checking out Mrs Isabella Beeton biography as well. There is an entry on Wikipedia. If you like Downton Abbey you are in for a treat! Elizabeth David wrote recipe books on French Provincial cooking. She is also a classic. She’d probably hate this comparison but she’s a bit like Julia Child. Hope you can find these in the library and let me know what you think.
