Mushroom Meatballs

Recipe Idea:These vegetarian meatballs have a very meaty texture and are perfect for substituting in Swedish Meatballs, one of my daughter Erin’s favorite meals. Don and I both thought they were delicious. You can use them in pasta sauce or a cream sauce like the one in our original Swedish Meatballs recipe. I liked them so much, I made them…See More

Smoky Maple Root Veggies

Recipe Idea:I think you can use any vegetables to create delicious roasted veggies, but when it’s cold outside, you just can’t beat root vegetables. They are filling, flavorful and readily available in the fall and winter months. Adding a little maple syrup to them really jazzes up the savory taste. I modeled this recipe after Robin Robertson’s “Maple-Baked Root Vegetables” found in Vegan Planet.…See More

Donna's Spaghetti Sauce

Recipe Idea:My mom’s food was delicious—not always so healthy, but always tasty. She made much of her recipes from scratch, but like many moms in the 1960s, she also took advantage of prepared foods. Her spaghetti sauce was amazing. She had a stove with a built-in “deep well,” which was a burner that was recessed into the stove and functioned much like today’s crockpots (slow cookers). That’s where she made her spaghetti sauce. When you’ve had homemade spaghetti sauce (even with dried herbs and…See More

Oatmeal Pancakes

Recipe Idea:This recipe is a modification of my favorite James Beard pancake recipe. These gluten-free pancakes are delicious. My picky grandkids even like them.If you have leftovers, you can freeze them individually and pull them out for a quick breakfast or snack. (I wrap them in wax paper and put them in a freezer bag.) I also like them at room temperature for a mid-morning snack and they…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.…

Smell the Coffee: Food Allergies and Intolerances

Posted on November 20, 2014 at 7:44pm 0 Comments

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…

Smell the Coffee: Stepping up Production

Posted on November 18, 2014 at 7:00am 0 Comments

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…

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.
