Cooking Lecture and the Chemistry Behind Food

I love the science behind cooking. There is so much science behind cooking that we do not realize. Last week my husband and I attended a lecture given by Shirley O Corriher. She is the author of CookWise and BakeWise and is also the food scientist from the Alton Brown show. We both really enjoyed her talk. She was very informative and funny. My husband who usually […]

Best of the Best State Cookbooks

Several years ago I picked up a cookbook at a used book sale called The Best of the Best from Texas: Selected Recipes from Texas Favorite Cookbooks. I instantly love this cookbook.

Herbs and Spices: The Cook’s Reference
