There is nothing better than a home cooked meal during the holidays. That is, unless you’re the one doing the cooking. Slaving away over a hot stove making all of the sides, basting the turkey hour after hour, keeping people from opening the oven and digging in too early, can hardly be classified as holiday bliss. Yet, you keep doing it, because after family togetherness and time-honored tradition, food is at the heart and soul of the season.Where do you go for inspiration and new recipes? If you answered cooking magazines, then let the Irving Public Library save you a few dollars which you can put back into your grocery budget.
