Smell the Coffee: Celebrate Judy's Birthday & Roasted Potatoes and Mushrooms

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~Smell the Coffee March 24, 2015~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~My Sister’s BirthdayHi. It's Lois in the kitchen. Today, I want to tell you about my sister. Judy had a hearty laugh. You couldn’t keep yourself from laughing when she laughed. She could also get very angry and didn’t seem to worry about showing she was mad. I’ve often wished I could be as free and passionate as she was. She would have been 59 tomorrow if she had lived, but she died of cancer when she was 50. I miss her ever…See More

Roasted Potatoes and Mushrooms

Recipe Idea:Roasted anything makes the food taste so much better, don’t you agree? The mushrooms in this recipe were especially yummy. The basic idea for Roasted Vegetables is to have rather uniform sizes for whatever vegetables you choose, toss them in olive or canola oil, add a little salt and pepper and a little spice (or not) like basil, rosemary or tarragon (or maybe all three), and bake them in a 450F degree oven for 20-40 minutes (depending on the size of the veggies), turning halfway…See More

Smell the Coffee: Hamburger Potato "Lasagna"

~*~*~*~*~*~*~Smell the Coffee March 3, 2015~*~*~*~*~*~*Use Those LeftoversHi. It's Lois in the kitchen. I grew up in a family of five, and my brain is freeze-dried in the frame, I think. I do not seem to be able to make food for fewer than five people...unless I'm making a grilled pork chop and baked potato. Most of the time, having leftovers is fine with me. I am not overly fond of sandwiches, so eating leftovers for lunch is my modus operandi.We had some leftover…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?

Hey lois, i added a few things. hope you like them.  :))

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.
