May 2011 my sister Dottie moved in here with me. She took early retirement from her job in NY; moved away from her 2 grown daughters, a son-in-law and 12 year-old grandson to come out here to help me finacially and physically. She loves to cook (at does

I've been on disability since 1991; my sister now lives with me in the townhouse.
My favorite things to cook
Casseroles; desserts; vegetables; soups
My favorite family cooking traditions
Shepherd's Pie; Cheesecake; Goo Goos (leftover spaghetti, sliced hot dogs, onions, tomato sauce)
