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!
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!
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!
The freshest and best of ingredients combined with a willingness to take the time and effort required for a great product are both essential to making good food at home!
