I may not be a gourmet cook, but I do enjoy cooking and look for inspiration in books. I feel that cooking for people is a wonderful way of showing how you feel about them. Also, if I have plenty of time, it is a wonderful creative outlet, as well as a way to relax. Apparently, I am not the only who feels this way. Some of my favorite books are about cooking and the author or characters share my feelings as well. Enjoy these picks! - Rosanna (Admin)
