I’ve liked to cook for as long as I can remember. My first cookbook was The Mickey Mouse Cookbook, which I still use today.
When I turned 13 my dad gave me another classic, with the following inscription:
Pam, you enjoy cooking and I hope that this book will add to that enjoyment. Just go easy on the garlic! Love, Dad
Here are some of our family’s favorite recipes–including a few that didn’t quite turn out as I planned!
