I was an English teacher for 30 years. I loved that! It could be a tad stressful now and then.  Lots of paperwork. Marking!  Oh my!  So I would relax by cooking!

Then along came technology (I do well remember life without the Internet!) and I embraced it with lots of enthusiasm. Lots of concentration and coding.  Oh my!  So I would relax by cooking!

In retirement, I have combined my enthusiasm for teaching and technology by teaching computers (tablets, smartphones etc.) to seniors. This is more fun than stressful, and relaxation is pretty much my life, but I still love to cook!

My Kitchen

I love to cook!  And I love to share my passions with others! Thanks to the Morrisburg Leader for giving me the opportunity to blather on.

I am a home cook. I don't claim to be the best in town. I just love to eat and I love to cook. People, kindly, ask for recipes or techniques bytimes, so my intention with this website is to have a place to which I can refer them.

Most of my recipes are gleaned and adapted from reading and googling about.  I will try to give credit where credit is due.  Screenshots and images will be linked to the referring site. 

Thanks for stopping by!

My Philosophy

I keep no secrets.

Some folks keep their cooking secrets very close.  I believe in sharing. There is no recipe that I won't be tweaking anyway.  As I adapt those that I make often, I will try to remember to change them here.  In the past few years, I have been given the opportunity to write a column for our local newspaper, the Morrisburg Leader. These blog posts are my newspaper columns. If you have a suggestion for how to improve a recipe or technique, please feel free to send along a comment!  I'd love to hear from you!
