Christine's Recipes

I collected these recipes and put them online for a few different purposes.  First of all, I travel a lot and this way I don't have to bring all of my notebooks and cookbooks with me.  I also always know where my latest version of a recipe is.  It makes it easier to share my recipes.  I'm also trying to teach other grad students how to cook and most of these recipes are relatively simple.  Another, more devious motivation is to hook my non-American friends on American cooking.  I'm also trying to promote traditional American cooking and show people that American cuisine does go beyond hamburgers and french fries.

These are family recipes, recipes I made up myself, recipes I changed from their original form, and a few I got out of books when the recipe was either perfect or something I make rarely so didn't have notes on what I'd done the last time.  (As I change recipes, my favorite version will be put up here.)  I cited sources, except for a few I got from my Mom which I didn't have time to add citations to.

This is intended for my family and friends.  There are typos.  I mix unit systems sometimes so Americans may need to look at the unit conversion page.

The following notes and unit conversions were written primarily for Europeans trying to use these recipes, which are all in American units (which actually differ slightly from Imperial units.)
