People are ADDICTED to misterpeter's recipes!
at the same time i began banging about in the cooking arena i started collecting cookbooks. the several hundred relics i have acquired are read from cover to cover, though i rarely make any recipes from these treasures, i am transported to a time when cooks actually made the food themselves. most of the books are pre-1950. after that time too many recipies have a can of condensed soup as an ingredient, how distasteful. if reading a recipe brings me to the "can-o-soup" ingredient the page is turned. something about that bothers this new-born cook, not sure what it is but i feel this undeniable urge. i actually know one of the campbell soup heirs.. she looks exactly like one of the "soup kids" we all recognize..... strange.
