*cookbook note: if you live in the Pacific Northwest and haven't read the Taste of Oregon Cookbook it's a must. It was put together in the 70's by the Junior Leaugue or something like that and it has a lot of great local favorites, dishes from restaurants and seasonal recipes using local food such as Salmon, apples, hazelnuts (which are actually called filberts here) and cranberries. My favorite part however, is all the pioneer facts and recipes scattered throughout. Many of my childhood favorites are found it this book like Taco Casserole, Italian swiss steak, terriaki appetizers, potato soup, and wild strawberry pie.
