I have a confession to make. I miss the good old days. Three years ago we were not in a recession. The worst recession since the Great Depression. You could shop until you dropped. Dine at your favorite restaurant. A friend would tell you about the newest restaurant rage. You would go just to tell people you ate there. Even if the food was not that good. But not all is lost. Now you can cook famous recipes and famous restaurant recipes at home. The 2009 Inaugural Luncheon is provided by America’s Secret Recipes.Secret recipes revealed!
