Well, after getting lazy about my blog, it's direction is changing.Cooking and being primary caregiver for my father-in-law, diagnosed with diabetes is now a high priority.
This is actually a blessing in disguise. How many people short-change their own eating habits, believing that to cheat…

We have a really tiny kitchen. Or as my daughter calls it, my "one-butt" kitchen. Two people cannot move about freely without one person acting as traffic controller, to avoid collision. One might think that it would be easier for me to cook alone, but
my husband, Art is actually a…

Unless I'm really tired, I don't do takeout. Basically, I'm cheap. Inside my head I usually hear a little voice saying, "you could have made three times this amount for what you paid."
So, instead of missing out on my favorite thing to do, eat samples of many items, I do my own…

Time is getting out of hand this week, and I seem to be missing lunch, which leaves me famished for dinner. When my schedule is this frantic, I often use my 15 minute crack of time around lunch to find a quiet place to eat and prepare for the afternoon.
What are your favorite sandwiches, or…

Today was a windy, rainy, "tornado watch" day, so what better way to spend it than hunkered down inside, while the scents from French Onion Soup wafted through the house. Yes, French Onion Soup is one of my comfort foods, not necessarily be cause it's

I love eggplant parmegiana, and thought I would get the family recipe from my 82 year old aunt. She doesn't like to use the internet, she does occasionally send out a joke, and loves receiving pictures from us, so her daughter responded for her.
Imagine my surprise, when I received this…

As I was going thru the family recipes (that were actually written), I realized that they were written to serve 4 to 6 people, but that when growing up, we always made sooooooo much more than the recipe indicated.
While eavesdropping on my teen-aged daughter, who was teaching her younger…

Ok, in theory, the idea of double the work and save half the time sort of
works. Today's dinner butternut squash soup, seemed like such a good idea --
yesterday. But, here's where the gourmet comes in. If I hadn't pre-prepared the squash, I would have just grabbed something to eat, for the…

I'm all about value -- I like good food, nice vacations, good books ..... everything you might see on lifestyles of the rich and famous -- if anyone is old enough to remember that television show!
However -- here's the catch -- I'm not rich, or famous, nor do I have time for the lifestyle.…
