MY KIND OF COOKING COOKBOOKS.
We have an empty nest at our house. When I cook now, it is usually just for my husband Stan and I. When we are hungry for garlic bread, I only need a couple of slices not the whole loaf. When I buy a loaf of French bread, I slice it and pack it in individual plastic storage bags and freeze. It is hard for the two of us to eat the whole loaf and this way I won't have to throw away food. I hate to throw away food! I have seen the starving children in third world countries. It changes how you view things.
