Several of the girls at the Bible College have asked me for recipes this week (and can I just tell you how much that delights me? I love that you all like to cook!). I thought about writing out the recipes and then copying them and cutting them and then trying to track down all the askers ... but then I thought, Why? The internet is so much easier.

So here's a link to my recipe collection. Included on the page you'll find the Cabbage Patch Soup, Snickerdoodles, and Frosted Brownies (among others). And P.S. ... I apologize about the Styx "Sail Away" loop that plays over and over and over. It makes me happy. But if it drives you crazy, turn your volume down while you're copying recipes.

A word about the recipes: Except for baked goods, I seldom follow an actual recipe or measure what I'm putting in, so you'll have to forgive my estimations. But I encourage you to try the "toss in and taste" method. It's really the best way to free yourself from the notion that you have to follow someone else's ideas to the letter. Cooking is very personal. If you like it hotter, throw in some more chili powder or a dash of tabasco. If you want to add a different kind of vegetable, go ahead. The only time this doesn't work well is with baking, because baking is pretty much an exact science. Sometimes, like with the frosted brownies, you can throw in different additions, but you can't change the quantities of baking soda or flour or eggs without causing a noticeable difference in the outcome.

Write if you have questions!
