About My Recipe Treasures

Thank you for stopping by.  I’m Amy; and my food blog, My Recipe Treasures, is a result of my desire to share my love of cooking with all of you.  I hope that you will find just the recipe that you are looking for, and then some, on my blog!  While cooking for my family and loved ones throughout the years, I have tried many recipes, and I continue to try new recipes.  The recipes that I have posted on my blog are the recipes that we have tried and enjoyed the most.  I love cooking and baking.  Sometimes when life gets tough, I bake!  I enjoy foods of all kinds, but some of my favorite foods are chocolate covered nuts (any kind of nuts), and any recipe that has pumpkin in it.

My desire is that you will make new recipes, and that the time you spend sharing these new food dishes with your families and loved ones, will result in many pleasant memories and even some new treasured traditions.  You can always find someone to share your food with, even if you don’t have a lot of family around. Enjoy the best recipes for you to make, depending on your situation.  Many of the recipes on my blog have been created with the busy individual in mind.  Those recipes don’t take too much time out of your busy day, but are still really good.  There are also recipes on my blog that take a little longer to make, when you have the time.  Sometimes, I find that cooking with someone else is also very rewarding.  Some of my best memories are times spent cooking with my grandmother, mother, aunts, siblings, husband, children, and friends.  Now I savor time spent in the kitchen with my grandchildren!  They get so excited when they get to help grandma cook.  However, the time that is the best, is when you can sit down with your family and loved ones, and enjoy a great meal and good conversation. Those are Treasures that will long be remembered and cherished.
