I have been thinking about what I want to put on this site and I’ve almost decided. It’s going to be something of an instructional, how-to blog, I’m almost certain. Cooking isn’t taught in school any more and moms who work outside the home don’t necessarily have the time to teach their kids how to cook. Heck, they barely have time to cook for their families at all.

My good friend, Nancy Binetti, started a mini cooking school for her daughter Molly and her friends when Molly was at Marquette University. Molls would bring her friends home on the weekend and Nancy would have devised a simple meal plan for them to make. The girls loved it. The meals weren’t all that fancy – just some basic survival cooking.

There will also be some old favorite recipes of mine – and John’s. He would never let me do this without adding in his two cents worth, as evidenced by his addition of a recipe before I ever got to type a word. Maybe I’ll cook even more of the multitude of recipes I’ve posted on Facebook and share the results here. Don’t worry, failures as well as successes will be included.

If any of you have a recipe that I *simply must* put on here, let me know. I’m happy to share my space and will give full credit to the originating chef. If there is a topic you’d like me to investigate or elaborate upon, let me know.

Wish me luck! After all, you all will be the ones eating my recipes in the end.

  1. I was interested in John’s commentary on develed eggs so took a chance that it might be on this site which I had not visited. I like the egg recipe. I also think this is the way for you to use all the recipes you are collecting…but I would suggest making them before putting them on the site. I am a memver of the Amehrst chapter of League of women voters and work on a major annual fund raiser…used book sale which brings in thousands of $$. I did find thoough that each year purchases of cookbooks decrease ….and this year I processed the donated cookbooks, many beautiful and reputalbe ones, all brand new !! People were not buying them either….you can find anything on the internet..even an old recipe you lost 25 years ago ! I think Justin bought hte only cookbook which he found on the Treasures table and it was a brand new copy of the republished Betty Crocker cookbook..he got it on the off hand chance that one of us had worn ours out..( we all got them at christmas time 1961)… Most of the recipes I have used over the years did not come from books…either handed down or clipped from mags or papers…I have pared my cookbooks from over a 100 to less than 50…and some kept only for sentimental reasons…or are the ones that included helpful hints or the few recipes I did use ( some only I should copy those and heve the books..)….You write so very well..Have you thought about a newspaper column? Love you tons..Joann

    Excuse the typos and spelling…between the heat effects on me and the computer wearing out…there is some creative spelling included above.

  2. Each of these recipes has been tested by me at least twice, the most recent test being right before publication here. So, no worries. These recipes are good to go.
