Inspirational Blog

I haven't done much cooking in the past number of years.  Mostly it's because I am cooking for one and it's easier to put something in the microwave, go to a restaurant or order out.

Lately, however, I've had the urge to cook.  I'm guessing it's because I'm going to have people to cook for, which excites me, once I move.  I've always wanted to have a big table with room for family and friends to gather round and share a meal (and knitting time too, of course!).

I mentioned in a previous post that I'm in search of good Mexican recipes.  I haven't cooked Mexican food in the past.  I don't count opening a box and making tacos from a kit.  It's not something that I grew up with.  I've found a website with a variety of recipes, including this tasty-looking guacamole

There are also German recipes.  I love German food and have made quite a few dishes in the past.  My friend, Rosa in Ettenheimweiler, taught me some recipes as well as some German as we cooked together - and she learned some English.

I'll be going back to "My Kitchen In The Rockies" often as a source for good recipes and ideas.

Okay, now I've made myself hungry........
