RECIPES

This page is a work in progress...

I was never consided "the cook" in the family when I was growing up. At some point in time, which I cannot remember, I started cooking and have become addicted to the meditative state induced by chopping, simmering, and stewing, as well as by the challenge of trying something new. I'm not a particularly good cook, but I do like to try.  Here's a list of my posts which include recipe links to some of my more successful attempts...
