About this Cook
As a freelancer, I write about food, travel, entertainment and health. Publishing began as business/health writer for Orange County Business Journal, drama critic for Orange County Register, LA Times, and Irvine World News, and food critic for Orange County Register's 13 city papers. I follow hubby around the country, so next destination in IL/WI was freelancing for Stateline Business and Rock River Times (my Lunch with Marjorie column is still online there). Now in CT, I write about life in New England, travel, continue Lunch with Marjorie, and have other ventures happening. I have consolidated all my writings at Click on MENU for the growing list. Please leave comments! Thank you so much for reading. Marjorie

Zucchini Casserole II
I made a few adaptions--made my own mushroom soup roux, doubled the onion and an extra bread crumb layer. It was a BIG hit with the 39 people at the dinner we went to. They actually announced at the table that Marjorie's casserole was a hit. Hint: I made this a day ahead, so when it came time to reheat, it was from a COLD start. So it took 45 minutes to get it to 160F. Next time, I may prep veggies and assemble and bake closer to time to serve.

Cranberry Orange Wheat Scones
These scones are made for whole wheat flour and thus give a nice consistency and taste. They are crisper than many scone recipes, so some may want a lighter scone. We liked 'em.

Blueberry Shortbread Bars
As usual, Chef John delivers a great recipe. I wanted a cookie bar for my favorite mechanics at our local Midas shop who love cookies. I don't do cookies well, and usually take them scones ( the Savoy recipe here at AR). After watching John's video, I thought these were a good compromise between cookies and scones. They turned out very well. Thanks Chef John.
