You know I am glad to see this type of site, but I can't bring myself to read about these Cooking ideas. WHY?
Well, I have High cholesteral
Need to loose some weight
Need to exercise
I get more hungry each time I see these delightful titles
And Lord knows, I would be pigging out --testing. For those of you who have will power, I envy you. Is there a section for us weight concious and health concious folks. Please note it by your recipes. The name of the book in the subject line was written by the National Council of Negro Women, Inc, A collection of W. African and African American Recipes and Cultural Traditions.
I've tried to introduce one of these recipes to family and friends--Black Eye Pea Salad, But you know they turn their nose up to anything that sounds like it may have come from an African reicpe. After I have gotten 1 or 2 to be adventurous and they like it, some will try.
I had the same problems with a cake called "DUMP CAKE". The nose goes up, so I get the ice cream and put on it and folks get jealous.
