How many of you have found a perfect recipe?  It looks good on paper, you make it, it turns out perfect, everyone loves it, BUT… when you try to make it again, you can’t remember which cookbook/internet site/friend/family member it came from.  Yep, that’s me!

As a solution to my extremely frustrating problem, I decide to create my own cookbook on Taste Book, called “Grove Family Favorites”.  This was not a cookbook of original recipes but of all the recipes I’ve made for my family that they love.  These recipes have been given to me by friends or family, found in a cookbook or website, some have been altered to my families taste, some have been left alone.  All in all, this cookbook is everything we love as a family and all in ONE PLACE.

If you ask me, a good recipe is one that YOU love, a great recipe is one that you love, have shared & now EVERYONE loves.

So here I am…Sharing 🙂
