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.

At 11:40am on September 28, 2011, Diane Salkeld Bayer said…
Thanks, I'll try to keep up.
