I really wish I could:

My top 5 favorite restaurants:

My most tattered cookbooks:
My handwritten recipe book, The Joy of Cooking, 500 Hot & Spicy Recipes, Betty Crocker's Cooking Basics (one of my first, given to me by mom, really helps me remember cooking times/temps and measurements of spices in things like meatloaf, baked potatoes, simple stuff)
