My Favorite Recipes
Sign InView Entries
I've traveled to every continent except the Antarctic. I traveled while in he US Navy, then I spent many years in International Sales and in recent years I’ve traveled for pleasure.  I've been in almost all of the countries in Europe and Asia.  In the USA, 
I have traveled to 49 of the 50 states.  

I think that this travel is 
significant because of the 
true taste experience that 
can only be achieved by 
travel, along with a 
willingness to try the 
specialties of the location 
that you are visiting. 

I’m not a real chef, but I enjoy cooking 
and eating fine food.  I also like quick and 
easy recipes.  This website contains a collection of "My Favorite Recipes" borrowed from my mother, family, friends and restaurants from all over the world.  I also have added a few of my own creations. The recipes that have a Star in front of the name are ones that I recommend as the best that I’ve collected.  I hope that you enjoy. Please let me know if you have corrections. 

Bon Appetite,   Bill

This website is dedicated to my mother Charlotte Fraser and to her mother Myrtle Thomas.  Both were excepitional cooks that had to feed large families.  Some of the recipes on this site came directly from them or are slightly modified versions of their recipes.
