I love cookbooks. I believe I have about 1000 books but I'm including the little "Pillsbury" type books that you get at the checkout in grocery stores. I love to cook and try different recipes. My favorite books are usually ones that have been given to me as a present and I always ask the person to sign the book. I also have a collection of recipes passed down from my mother and from other friends. My mother made these incredible chocolate brownies and the recipe made a lot of these thick, rich, chewy brownies. During the last few years of my mom's life she wasn't baking these brownies so whenever I made them I would always take a plate to her. One day I took about 9 brownies to her and she phoned me the next day to tell me that the brownies were gone - she tried them in different ways or at least that was the excuse she was giving for having the brownies disappear so quickly. Here's what she did with the brownies: ate one just as is, one was warmed in the microwave, one was warmed in the microwave and a scoop of ice cream was the topper, one was warmed in the microwave with a bit of whipped cream, one was just served with ice cream (without the warming)... She made an incredible lamb shank "stew" and if anyone has a recipe for this dish, I would be grateful since I never got this recipe from my mom. My favorite things to make are appetizers and my kids and hubby are always happy to be the testers. If anyone would like the recipe for the brownies, just let me know.
