Friday's recipe is for a small batch of coleslaw. You could use the proportions to judge the volume of vegetables and dressing ingrdients you need to make your own special small batch salad. There is so much good produce to use in the summer, I like to have a different salad each night. Some… MORE

Wednesday's recipe is for a cucumber and feta salad. Very simple dressing but gives the plain vegetables wonderful flavor with out covering them up. Did say yet that I love summer? Probably. It isn't just the warm weather. All the produce from my farm share and the farmers market bring out… MORE

I've been trying a few new, what I call, gourmet recipes. I guess I consider them gourmet because they are unusual ingredient combos or are formualas I think are quite different from what I usually prepare. Tuesday's recipe I call Red Grape Cup. It makes a great first course. I served it as… MORE

Friday's recipe is for a peach and blueberry sauce. It is great on pancakes or served cold on ice cream. I love when the price of summer fruits goes down. However, it is hard to stock up on them. They go bad much sooner than winter fruits like apples and oranges. Making special sauces like… MORE

Today's recipe is for a creamy Italian salad dressing. If made with nonfat mayonnaise, about 26 calories per 2 tablespoons. I usually use reduced fat mayonnaise because it becomes more watery with the nonfat after a day or two. I certainly use bottled salad dressing for convenience and as a… MORE

Wednesday's recipe is for a Thai inspired chicken, vegetables and rice. I like cooking with whole grain rice. I find it has more flavor and of course more texture than white rice. It's longer cooking time enables me to put the rest of the meal together. I ended up making this a little spicier… MORE

Here is a twist on a creamy pasta salad: Ziti and Cheese Salad at www.cjsrecipe.com for Tuesday. When I have more time at the computer (hopefully tomorrow) I post my "Thai Style" Chicken and Rice. It's the kind of dish I come up with when I have multiple ingredients I'm trying to… MORE

My recipe for Monday is for a colorful fuit salad dressing with a sparkling dressing. It is very simple. This one needs to be served right away. Otherwise I usually have a big bowl of mixed melons, berries and pineapple in the frig most of the summer www.cjsrecipe.com. MORE

I've been getting the refrigerator sized seedless watermelons at a very good price in my area. This weekend's recipe is for a Watermelon Daiquiri. If you don't like having alcohol, you could substitue de-alcoholized dry white wine for the rum. (Don't use cooking wine). This is a cooling… 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.
