My first-born is celebrating her birthday today! Kristina started out as a foodie at a very young age, one time being on a culinary adventure in New York City. Here she is posing in front of the iconic “Silver Palate,” which also happens to be the subject of this weeks’ cookbook giveaways (enter by tonight!)
Happy Birthday to my Kristina!!

Later she learned to cook in a pot, not just sit in it!
Kristina loves reading cookbooks, especially here at Tyler Florence’s store in Mill Valley, California
And now, Kristina is a huge success with her blog, BetterRecipes.com, cooking on television, traveling and learning around the world, and meeting culinary celebrities!
I am so proud of you, sweetheart! Have a wonderful birthday today!!!!!
Love you! Momma
Why I Started This Blog
I love cookbooks. I mean I really love them. I love to read them, treasure them, learn from them, and, of course, cook from them. To me, cookbooks take on a life all of their own. They are history, family, and memories. I have been collecting cookbooks and writing down treasured recipes of family, friends, and neighbors since about age twelve, which means I now own thousands of cookbooks, recipes, and clippings. Now I want to share them with you along with the many other culinary treasures of my cellar." - Debbie Vanni
