I hate most flavors/textures. Heidi wants a cookbook for her anniversary. Being a good wife, she does not want this for the purpose of inflicting misery, but for the purpose of improved knowledge of how to manipulate food so as to make it acceptable. I am from a Pennsylvania Dutch background, but consider scrapple, beets, and sauerkraut about all equally abominable. Also I don't like casseroles. Or vegetables. Or fruit. Or spices. Or herbs. Or intestines. With that in mind - cookbook recommendations anyone?
