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

I swear within the last few days I saw a recipe featured in the daily issue for a lettuce, cheddar, apple, almond salad with a dressing using orange marmalade.  I thought I saved it.  I went out and bought all the ingredients I had jotted down that I do not have.  I am having a dinner party… MORE

Recently I read two things about eggs.  I don't know if they are true or not.  I know many of you have your own hens and coops so I consider you experts.  Fact or Myth:  Eggs last longer if they go unwashed, washing them removes some protective barrier.  I always remove my eggs from the… MORE

That's right, mold is a good thing.  You may have been following the efforts of myself and several other bloggers to lose some weight by saying no to foods we usually eat in an attempt to total a 500 cal. savings per day/1 lb. wt. loss per week. It has been interesting to see where our… MORE

I have formulated my new year's resolutions.  Among them is to THINK NEGATIVELY!  That's right, it is my latest grand scheme to lose weight.  I am of the opinion that the best and healthiest way to lose weight is to reduce your caloric intake/increase your activity.  I don't subscribe to the… 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!
