Roasted Spaghetti Squash with Citrus (GF, Vgn, DF)

Started Aug 16 0 Replies

Recipe Idea:I love spaghetti squash. I can eat it just like pasta, with sauce, pesto, or garlic butter. Don had a bit too much of it as a child, however, and he doesn’t care for it. Every year we go…Continue

A Lighter Eggplant Parmesan

Started Aug 16 0 Replies

Recipe Idea:Eggplant is terrific when it is cooked right. I love it in Baba Ganooj and Ratatouille, but usually I am not a fan of Eggplant Parmesan because most restaurants make it mushy and they…Continue

Recipe Idea:Did you know that buckwheat is not really wheat? So if you are sensitive to gluten, you should still be able to eat delicious buckwheat!  And if you use the vegan alternatives, this…Continue

Robin Robertson's "Messa" Collards

Recipe Idea:I love Robin Robertson's Fresh from the Vegetarian Slow Cooker cookbook. The unusual combination of ingredients and the little tips and tricks she includes in the recipes make it easy to create an amazing meal. Her "Messa" Collards recipe is no exception. I know a lot of people tout eating "greens" these days, and I have always loved collards. This is an easy way to add…See More

Zucchini Bread (Gluten-free)

Recipe Idea:Our neighbors gave us some BIG zucchini, the kind that is terrific for Zucchini Bread, so I made some. When I bake cakes and cookies, I keep trying to figure out the right combination of gluten-free flours to get the right texture. This was perfect!The bread is not overly sweet and has a wonderful spicy flavor. It is moist, more like a cake, but I bake it in loaf pans and eat it toasted or plain with butter. It's amazing!…See More

Roasted Mushroom & White Bean Soup

Recipe Idea:A colleague at work recently had some surgery and was restricted to eating "soft" foods. I volunteered to bring him some soup and found this original recipe by Amy Johnson of She Wears Many Hats. It was very flavorful.Of course, I adjusted the recipe to suit my desire to create a dairy-free, gluten-free, vegan version using ingredients I had on hand, as well as a soup that would be easy to eat…See More

Profile Information

About me:
I enjoy cooking, sharing recipes and talking about food. I learned to cook by watching my mother cook; she seldom cooked from a recipe. Mom had a natural talent (as do I) regarding what foods will taste good together. I try to cook healthy, organic foods whenever I can, but sometimes I just want chocolate cake! Don't you?

I have had a cold for nearly a week so I haven't been posting much of anything, including recipes. I did add some photos today. Check out Abbi Clissold's Wisconsin Kringle and Don's delicious Waffles! 



Smell the Coffee: Thanksgiving Visit

Posted on November 27, 2011 at 8:30pm 0 Comments

Smell the Coffee

Don and I had a lovely Thanksgiving dinner on Thursday, just the two of us. Since we had celebrated the holiday the week before with our two daughters from Williamsburg, we had ham instead of Turkey and later watched the latest Pirates of the Caribean film. It was relaxing.

On Friday, we got up, packed and drove to Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, where we had a wonderful weekend and spent all of Saturday with Don's mom, Momma Betty. (I…


It's almost Thanksgiving. What are you thankful for?

Posted on November 10, 2011 at 6:23pm 0 Comments

I have so many reasons to be thankful. I'm thankful for my family, especially my children, grandchildren and husband. They all give me such joy (though sometimes I'm joyful to stop pulling out my hair with their craziness!). I'm also thankful I'm healthy, employed and live a good life.

Tomorrow is Veteran's Day. I would be remiss if I didn't mention I'm especially thankful for all the good men and women who are willing to serve in our armed forces. My brother Steve, who passed away in…

Thankyou lois, I enjoyed your cooking last year, and this year I am sure I will taste them again. 

Yes I am coming in May inshaALLAH...:)

I'm just realizing that Don's comment about missing me was actually a note to you two months ago. The reason I thought it was a message to me is because I saw that he was online when I joined last night. I'll figure this out eventually.

Yes, the family cookbook was a labor of love. My mother was a fabulous cook...she still is, but at age 88 and living in a retirement community, she doesn't cook as much as she used to. Her abiding talent was making fabulous things out of whatever was on hand!

How cool that you can display recipes from this site on your Nook. I have a Kindle. Can I do it there too?

Sorry I missed you, Don -- My computer is on 24/7, so I must have walked away.

Lois, my family cookbook project was all done "in-house" since I have a home-based desktop publishing business. It was a simple, spiral-bound book, intended primarily for family members. If I ever want to create a cookbook that is the quality for selling, I'd love to know from you and others what experience they've had along this line.

At 10:39pm on January 16, 2012, Elizabeth H. Cottrell said…

Thanks, Lois. I do enjoy cooking and sharing recipes -- putting together a family cookbook a few years ago was a wonderful project. I responded to your nice invitation to see what this group is all about. If I don't feel it's a good match, I'll withdraw, but am looking forward to sharing with others.

Hi new RIS friend. I tried chatting with you but got no answer.

Thanks, I'll try to keep up.
