I made turkey meatballs the other night from an AR Recipe except I substituted a lot of stuff, I added shredded carrots left over from 5 star eggrolls, and mushrooms and a bunch of other stuff and they came out great.  I couldn't wait to tell you all about it except when I went in to write… MORE

The other day I blogged on "Waste Not Want Not", using up leftovers.  I again took inventory of what was in the refrig. to plan dinner, I had some pepperoni, some cheese, some cured olives, and tomatoes and herbs.  I was thinking "Oh guess it is pizza night again".  Then I logged on to A.R.… MORE

I had some zucchini that was kinda soft, some carrots that were starting to look pale and a very ripe pineapple.  I canoodled around on AR and came up with the Zucchini Pineapple Muffin recipe.  I made a variation of the recipe trying to use up all my on the edge stuff in the refrigerator,… MORE

Recently I made homemade Ricotta cheese.  After straining the curds, I was left with this buttery tasting pale yellow liquid (The Whey).  I wondered what to do with it.  Recipe Buzz to the rescue and they recommend using it to cook veggies in and to make bread with and Petey even said you… MORE

I have trouble sleeping.  Despite their claims my new memory foam adjustable bed has not cured me but it has made me more comfortable while I toss and turn.  Anyway, I am up and down all night, sometimes watching tv, even the infomercials.  I succumbed to Kathy and John  and  "Ready, Set,… MORE

I have been attending cooking demonstrations at the local organic grocery store.  I was given a few coupons for free agave syrup and something called Quorn.  I went to the frozen food section and found a case full of "fake chicken cutlets".  Priced at $6.99  for two cutlets Gotta tell ya, if… MORE

For those of you who missed my stop and eat the roses blog, I have just officially retired.  It is a big deal for me.  So far the best part, next to sleeping in if I want to, is NO MORE BLACKBERRIES.  I know this is a food site so I am putting a food spin on this yarn where it really does not… MORE

I am ready for breakfast in bed.  I can sit straight up and hold a tray in my lap.  I bit the bullet and went out and bought a memory foam bed (the one that starts with T) on an adjustable base with built in massage.  It was a major expenditure for me, but by shopping around and some haggling… MORE

yesterday I blogged because I could not find a salad recipe.  Thanks to you that tried to help me.  One of you suggested I may have seen it on another site, which I knew could not be the case since I don't very often log on to other sites.  Low and behold, I looked in my documents on my… MORE

About Me
I am a retired registered nurse. I have two fabulous grandchildren ages 10 and 7, they live only 1 mile from me so we cook together often.
My favorite things to cook
I like one pot meals, slow cooker, rustic fare. Lately, I am cultivating recipes for soup and have turned out some really good results, especially using curry seasoning. I am not a baker.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I make many of my mother's dishes. I like to entertain with just a wide array of appetizers sometimes, even though it is labor intensive.
My cooking triumphs
My Italian spaghetti sauce. My famous pot roast made in an oven bag. Appetizers.
My cooking tragedies
My latest debacle is making Pho, Vietnamese beef soup. Very labor intensive, many exotic ingredients, cook all day. I went to strain it through a cheesecloth lined colander and forgot to put anything under the colander. Down the drain it went; 7 hours worth of broth. Oh Well!
