Our network's food critics all across the country are receiving reports that there are inferior products on the shelves of markets in this country!  Consumers  began reporting in Arizona, where numerous fans of freshly popped popcorn are complaining that the "popped corn" is small in size, and more kernal than  "popcorn."  Kitchen witches,at this point are not suspect in these travesties to the food industry, as it is more widely believed that the food industry itself is to blame.  A spokesperson from a widely known supplier of popcorn, Orvilles, states that if  one chooses to purchase lesser quality product, it is most definately not the responsiblilty of Orvilles Ltd. and recommends that all cooks should search their cupboards, and throw out any popcorn products that they feel may be of inferior quality.  LMAO News will continue to monitor all reports, and broadcast regularly.  Should you find that you are using an inferior product of any kind, you are urged to contact our food critics at, or call your local LMAO network at 1-800-LMAO.  This network will continue to inform all consumers.  Should any reports come in involving kitchen witches, these sightings will also be reported, but once again, at this time it is felt that these culinary gremlins are not involved.  Inferior products should not be tolerated at any cost, as waste is as costly as purchasing poor quality creates only more expense.

Just heard on THE FIX Business Network: Farmers are demanding that the supermarkets to stop taking the big pop from the popcorn. The farmers accuse the stores of hording the big pop to get the price of popcorn up at which time the big pop will be added to the new batch of popcorn for a really big pop. They will call it MOAP Popcorn. The farmers insist that the pop in the popcorn is their proprietary trademark and if more pop is needed they will fertilize the young crop with bean oil.

About Me
Started cooking many years ago, and learned as I went. First meal may have been "steak & chips" at age 15, in Birmingham England, where I lived for several years. Mostly grew up in MI, transplanted to the desert 30yrs ago, or so. Favorite cookbook is "Better Homes", also enjoy "Great British Cooking, a well kept secret." Hesitate to call myself "expert," but friends do rave...
My favorite things to cook
Italian has been my "specialty" for some time, and my "signature" meal is Lasagne, salad, garlic bread, which I first made 20yrs ago... from SCRATCH, very first time I made it. (Never again, folks...) Now start with a big jar of sauce!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanks to my heritage, I have enjoyed trying foods from different cultures. We still have beer battered fish, and chips of course; ground meat dishes often, chicken occasionally, pork too. I would love to submit a bean dip recipe, however, my ex who gave me the original has passed, and I have no way to verify that it didn't come from another source! I also enjoy British cooking (with a few yankee twists) and once made Plum puddings, also known as Christmas puddings, as far as I know... what an ordeal that was, but well worth the effort. Today, there is mail order!
My cooking triumphs
Greatest triumph was not too long ago, when I held a sit down dinner for 12, Lasagne being the entree. It was a fund raiser I chose to sponsor, and am proud to say that "we" raised over $1000 from that meal alone, minimum donation being $25. All proceeds collected were donated; my partner and I provided the meal and beverages.
My cooking tragedies
MEATLOAF of all things! Went through a stage of "winging" it each time, and I pulled one after another out of the oven that were almost unedible. As yet, not too big on baking... no sweet tooth here! Have dabbled, but find doughs/pastries especially difficult, perhaps as it's 90 degrees in my kitchen much of the year.
