Hi Everyone! I'm a 63-year-old retired bachelor Nerd that has learned there is life other than frozen dinners and learning out to cook for 1 or 2, make my own condiments to reduce the salt and to can the stuff I love so much and can't really get/afford commercially.
I'm tossing out a few generations of recipe collections that are for 6-8 people that I would never make, even if I resized it. I realize their very existence has been an intimidation to never (learn how to) cook and getting rid of them has been a tremendous emotional awakening. Thanks to MasterCook and a few half-size 3-ring notebooks, I'm making my own recipe books of things that I "know" I will do. I'm excited and my female relatives are getting jealous of my endeavors.
