Welcome to my world. I am a self taught cook who loves to cook and who loves to write. I once owned a small hot and ready to go food restaurant and store front that sold my line of original sauces and marinades that I developed. Taking into account my experience, my family recipes and my all original recipes I created a food blog site: http://pattyandersonsblog.blogspot.com and the title of my blog is "Cooking On A Budget". I also have a website http://greatrecipesonabudget.com that is the "sister" site to Cooking On A Budget. On those sites I post recipes that have been in my family through generations and new recipes I develop in my wonderful kitchen.
I love cookbooks and own quite a few of them and I am all about kitchen gadgets. There is no way I can pass a store that sells kitchen products; that would be blasphemy! My food mantra is: whether you eat to live or live to eat I can surely come up with something tasty and satisfying to your palette.
My main objective on my food sites is to show you how you can cook great things on a budget, give you helpful food tips, plan out party and dinner menus and help you to make food memories of your own to share with family and friends. There is nothing like making food memories around a kitchen, dining or buffet table. I hope you visit my blog site and join me as a follower - you are all welcome!
