Swiss Steak

Recipe Idea:If you know what to combine in a recipe, you can make an amazing dinner even if you don't have most of the ingredients. On Sunday, I wanted to make Swiss Steak. The Joy of Cooking recipe called for carrots and celery, and suggested serving it over mashed potatoes. I had none of those ingredients, but our supper was delicious. I wouldn't exactly call it Swiss Steak; it's more like a Beef Burgundy, but it was very good!…See More

I thought it was okay - the book was a whole lot better - but it inspired me to think about the delicious foods we had to eat in Costa Rica.Since Valley Friends Meeting (Quakers) has a "friendly meal" the first Sunday of each month, I decided to make a Costa Rican-inspired casserole to take to share. I also decided to try the Annato Seeds that I recently bought at a…See More

Balsamic Vinaigrette

Recipe Idea:We had some beautiful Portobello mushrooms and decided to grill them with a vinaigrette. They were delicious! This vinaigrette is terrific on a salad or as a marinade for vegetables, meat or chicken. The vinaigrette originally comes from Michele Anna Jordan’s Vinaigrettes and Other Dressings cookbook.…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?

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.

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.
