Because I am older than many of the other bloggers, I guess you could say I have been cooking for over 50 years. OUCH, Many things I learned from my Mom, and many others by reading cookbooks. I have cooked for large ranch crews and family, now down to my husband and myself. I have always gone toward good simple recipes and cooking, but after being introduced to Bountiful Baskets about 2 and 1/2 years ago, we began eating a lot more fresh fruits and vegetables. About 18 months ago, we decided to remove as much processed food, white flour and sugar as was possible from our diet. Many of the current recipes I am working with reflect the new way we are eating. Bountiful Baskets has been a wonderful help with our new way of eating. My love of cooking and our fresh foods has given me a reason, to look for new recipes and ways to use food, that I would not have given any thought to a few years ago.
