Smell the Coffee: Food Allergies and Intolerances

Recipe Idea:Test foods yourself!I recently read a friend's painful post about fibromyalgia and I feel the need to share my story. My problem may not be the one she has (or you have), but maybe what affects my joints and sciatica could also be affecting you.For years, I complained about joint pain. “You’re getting older. It’s osteoarthritis,” said my doctor. Then I got severe sciatica in one leg. I couldn’t sleep, went to the doctor, got cortisone shots, saw a physical therapist, went to the…See More

Smell the Coffee: Stepping up Production

Since Don and I like to cook, we often give homemade foodstuffs to friends and family for Christmas. This year, our daughter Erin and her family are coming to visit the first weekend in December and we plan to celebrate the holiday with them then, so we’ve had to step up our gift production a bit. It has been fun going back to our roots, coming up with items we think people would like, and accomplishing our goal of getting the presents done early. Plus, there’s always the need to taste test…See More

Ratatouille (Vegan)

Recipe Idea:Surprisingly, until I met Don, I had never even heard of Ratatouille. I love vegetables, but it has taken me a long time to move away from a “meat, potatoes and vegetable” supper. A lot of people in my family are not big vegetable eaters, so serving a vegetarian (especially vegan!) supper to them is not viewed positively. But this is an amazing recipe! Roasting the vegetables in this recipe heightens the flavor and packs in the taste. This is a terrific supper for a cold and rainy…See More

Jalapeño Cornbread

Recipe Idea:I decided to make cornbread tonight to go with the Roasted Ratatouille for supper. I love cornbread. It is easy to make and takes a mere 15-20 minutes to bake. It’s the perfect side for any Sunday supper. Tonight, since I didn’t have all the ingredients that my normal cornbread recipe calls for, I substituted multiple ingredients. Gluten-free, and it was amazing! I used the cast iron corn pone…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: Avoid the Stress

Smell the Coffee

November 21, 2014

Preparing for Thanksgiving

The holidays are upon us!  All the hustle, bustle, parties, and family gatherings. In the past, I felt stressed trying to get all the last-minute stuff done, well … at the last minute. But then I figured out that some things can be done ahead to take a bit of the stress out the workload.…

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.
