Welcome !

Cookings is all about the joy of cooking - the joy of creating a gift for friends and family.  Most importantly, it's about the joy of friends gathering together over a home cooked meal and being friends for each other.

Cookings aims to make it easier and more fun to entertain at your place.

To do this, Cookings brings you recipe ideas, menu plans, recommended cook books, a cook's guide to the web, plus wine and music reviews for adding that little something extra.   Cookings is not a large recipe archive, but a collection of essential recipes and menus  to cook through.
