All About Old And New Recipes
Cookbook Main Page
Old And New Recipes is a collection of recipes that I have invented (maybe reinvented) or simplified or improved; it also includes two pages of Food and Kitchen Tips and Opinions. Many of these recipes I use constantly; some of them I make primarily for special occasions or at certain times of the year. Some of them include the best wayor different waysto make some things that you may already know. They were specifically written to be clear, precise, and easy to make. This is not a cookbook stuffed with recipes that you will never want to eat. For pictures of the book, go to the picture page.
