Moving my breast cancer blog

It hasn't felt fully right to be keeping a blog on breast cancer as part of a recipe site... even though I've found so many supporters! But I want to share my experiences in a broader venue, where women who might benefit from it will have an easier chance of finding it.

So I've duplicated the posts you've already read and moved them to here: <

If you go there, you'll see I've added a new post... having to do with waiting for tests and test results. 

You'll also see my real name is Robin. I've used the name "ellenmoriah" as my online ID for much of the time (it's a variation of my great great grandmother's name). It seems more honest, though, to use my real name in connection with a blog that serves as the journal for my health journey(s).

Hope to see you there.

The messages you have provided on this site have been important to many. Your courageous pro-active approach to dealing with cancer is inspirational and necessary for those that are or could be dealing with cancer of any kind whether female or male. This may be a recipe site but those recipes mean little if folks are not aware of the consequences of an insufficient diet. The health aspects of your nutrient dense diet have been very important. Thank you for what you have done here and I sincerely hope you will continue this important contribution to this site.

Good Morning Robin. Thank you for the link. I am very interested and consider us friends now. So I will continue to follow your progress. I have found your blogs to be very uplifting, helpful and informative. I am proud to know you.

Ellen, you are indeed a role model for others. Good luck to you in your future blogging.

I would suggest if it isn't too much work that you copy here whatever you post on the Wordpress blog. As I had urged Mike Harvey when he thought to stop posting, you provide valuable education to many of us and provide us an opportunity to reach out to someone else, if only to say we care. I admit, I am very bad about following blogs unless they are right here under my nose even though I mean to do so. However it goes, know I keep you in my prayers and wish you only the best.

About Me
I've loved cooking since I was a kid, and still have my first (very battered) cookbook. Other than cooking, I adore interior design, writing, and playing bridge. Oh... and tasting new wines (or old favorites).
My favorite things to cook
As I've grown older, my tastes and philosophy have changed. I now use organic ingredients whenever I can, and I prefer using unprocessed ingredients.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Well, my mother (bless her) had 8 people to feed, so she made foods that were easy to prepare. My favorites were her baked ribs with barbecue sauce; english muffins topped with cheese, tomato, and bacon, and then broiled; and spaghetti noodles with tomato soup and cheddar cheese stirred in. I wouldn't make these dishes today, but they're full of fond memories.
My cooking triumphs
Adding orange juice to diced tomato sauce • Adding Cointreau to fresh fruit salads or a chocolate sauce • Adding tequila and bittersweet chocolate to chili • "poaching" salmon in orange juice, sprinkled with Old Bay and tarragon • adding cidar vinegar and soy sauce to vegetable soups • adding fresh mint to steamed red potatoes • knowing how to bail out a botched dish (example: over-steamed broccoli mashed with bleu or swiss cheese isn't nearly as bad as over-steamed broccoli on it's own).
My cooking tragedies
Over-steaming broccoli and most any other veggie... and a lasagna that was so loaded with oregano, no one could eat it.
