Today's recipe is one of my "full circle" recipes. That means I got it from my son. It is for Greek style pasta salad. He has a lot of recipe variations using the Greek style ingredients of tomatoes, olive, olive oil and feta cheese. He does not cook like my husband and I cook just… MORE

My heaviest meal of the day is breakfast. The pace of my occupation means I need a lot of fuel before I get to work. Tend to eat more vegetable and less protein with each successive meal. The recipe on my website this weekend is for a one skillet complete breakfast. Just add milk and juice on… MORE

About Me
I love to develop new recipes. I have had 15 recipes published by Reiman publications, publishers of TASTE OF HOME magazine. I like to try at least one new recipe a week. My other interests that aren't listed above are running and horse racing. By profession I am a registered medical technologist currently working in microbiology at a local medical center.
My favorite things to cook
Soups. Main dishes for interesting evening meals. Simple baking like cookie jar cookies and quick breads.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I basically make Thanksgiving dinner like my mom did.
My cooking triumphs
Winning a runner up prize for my lasagne recipe when I worked for the Nestle corporation. (I was a part time R&D assistant for the Willy Wonka Candy Factory)
My cooking tragedies
Trying to make sweet and sour shrimp with deep fried shrimp. Coating came off the shrimp when I put the sauce on. My familiy refused to eat it. We were short of money then and it hurt to waste the food and then go get MacDonald's for dinner.
