The title above is so that other farm share members could find me for recipes. We got lots of cucumbers so here is another cold soup recipe that really shows them off. Farm share members: put the name of the vegetable you want recipes for into the search area of this website. Believe me, you… MORE

I rarely use convenience products. However, I am currently fascinated by all the recipes using a box cake mix as a base. I buy the mixes when a store features them at $1 a piece or less. I needed to make something to take to a meeting at church Monday night. I'm really low on baking… MORE

Dear Readers: Was really down in the dumps yesterday. Had to shut down my website. It seemed to be the source of very serious viruses to my home computer. I had it up for almost 2 years but in that time I did not sell one cookbook through it. I only seem to sell them through word of mouth so… MORE

I don't make soup quite as often in the summer. I did make this up last week when I got more green beans than I knew what to do with from my farm share. I find fresh green beans need to be prepared with a day or two of purchase. I only cook for two most days so froze half the batch. Lately my… MORE

I've submitted two sour cherry recipes to allrecipes.com to make sure my instructions test well and other people can follow them. The season for sour cherries is short . People who don't live near or travel to Wisconsin would probably have to mail order them frozen. I would not want one of my… MORE

This recipe is great to use when your favorite fish is on special at the store. Buy and cook some extra. While grilled tuna tastes excellent prepared this way, I think salmon would be too strong a taste in this. Of course, it could be because I don't care for salmon in general. Summer Fish… MORE

Gardens start producing lots of zucchini  by this time of year. Try to harvest them  when about 6 inches long for use in salads. When I had a yard with a vegetable garden I found I had to check it daily to keep the summer squashes from getting gigantic. I'm lucky to have a farm share and… MORE

Today's recipe is for Sauce Verte ( or green sauce). This is a traditional recipe and this condiment is for serving with cold  cooked shellfish or vegetables. I especially like it with asparagus. A little dab will do you as it is made with mayonnaise. There's a green sauce in my cook book… 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.
