Recipe Box

My mom taught me how to cook when I was very young, so I've been cooking on my own for quite a while now. I have a joke that I "can't follow a recipe to save my life" since I like to play and modify and experiment when I cook.
I must admit that my favorite cookbook is "The Joy of Cooking" since it gives very basic recipes but tells you HOW to cook and how ingredients are going to act and interact. Likewise, one of my favorite cooking shows is Alton Brown's "Good Eats" because he gets into the scientific basis of cooking (plus he's a lot of fun!)
This is a collection of recipes that I enjoy making...some are from cookbooks, and others are modified greatly, and still others are my own creation.
