I am on the left coast for my father-in-law's funeral and Mom's house is filled with food from people willing to serve our family by bringing meals. I've needed access to a couple of my recipes and although Mom has one of my homemade cookbooks, it's nice to know I can go out onto the web and find my own recipes on this blog. It's like a cookbook-to-go without taking up luggage space. Sweet! So...# 1 reason to have a cooking blog - you always have your recipes at your fingertips!
