    I'm not sure if this is the right Forum for this but here goes.
    I 'm making a recipe book with all our family favourites and I'm now including some of my friends recipes who asked me for a copy. I love cooking and have been for the past 40 years; we have 4 sons who had good appetites.

    I am looking for sites on the net where I could find food or cooking quotes (English and French). Also I'm looking for cute clip art (black & white).I want to make it interesting and fun read.
    I did a search on Googles, but I thought I might be luckier over here. Any suggestions from anyone who has made a recipe book would be appreciated;I use Master Cook.
    Any ideas from all you food genuises?

    Rita,
    I treasure finding great cooking quotations. Thus far, here is the best site I have come across:
    www.FoodReference.com

    Happy hunting!

    Hi Rita,

    That's a great idea. I did it for my family in the early 90s and last updated it in 96.

    I used a quote as an introduction for each section. A few aren't food related, but were submitted by family members.

    Here you go.

    FISH and SEAFOOD
