I love food. I like to eat, I like to cook. I’m part Italian and a cancer; what can I say? I also like to make up my own recipes, usually only reading cook books for ideas.

Recipes are very limited right now, as I have recipes, like so much else, scattered in books, files, websites, bookmarks, scraps of paper, etc. With the new Google Sites there is not an automatic way to create a list of sub-pages. So please go to the menu above to get to recipes until they add it or I manually create a list of links.
