decorating, gardening, recipes and more

Welcome

I love food!

So I learned to cook at a very early age, mostly helping mom and my grandmothers by setting the table and finally advancing to making real whip cream. I remember the very first 3 course meal I made for my family, lettuce and tomato salad with bottled dressing, hamburger patty with BBQ sauce, instant mashed potatoes and peas. For Dessert it was grapefruit slices in orange juice. It was a 7th grade home economics assignment and I’m sure my parents said it was wonderful so I assume I received a good grade.

I have been stirring the pot and collecting recipes ever since.

Some of what you find here are recipes from my grandmother or mothers recipe box. Some are from cook books, blogs or food newsletters I subscribe to.
