Hi, everyone! My name is Ellen. I was born in the town so nice, they named it twice - New York, New York! I grew up in Ossining, NY, just minutes outside of Manhattan. My grandma immigrated to New York from Austria, and owned a delicatessen for years right near the original Yankee Stadium. She was a fabulous cook and baker, as was my mother, and I learned a lot about food preparation from both of them. I could cook a complete meal for eight people by the time I was in the third grade. I always loved to cook, and with two such great teachers, how could I not?!
I am a born-again Christian, and I have enjoyed serving on different ministries at my church, the most recent one being data-entering the info and prayer requests handed in every week on the Care & Communication Cards, and then I follow up with phone calls & emails to welcome, answer any questions, and assist, if needed. I also work with Community Caregivers, an organization providing all kinds of assitance to people who have need, including delivering prescriptions, providing transportation to doctor appointments, helping the visually disabled with paperwork, etc. It has been a great growing experience for me.
This is Jeff, my husband and most appreciative gourmand.

This four-pound lobstah is our idea of a perfect picnic supper!
Here are several photos I've taken of our yard from mid-Spring to late-Summer:
I have no favorite dish. I always say "I've never met a vegetable or shellfish I didn't like!" I love the variety that cooking and baking provide. I enjoy all kinds of foods, and I especially enjoy hot-and-spicy anything! When I'm not planning and cooking meals, I spend time in our yard tending the many flowers and shrubs we have. My husband designed and then put in by hand a 12' x 6' pond with waterfall and has gotten great at landscaping and has been creating "rooms" in our yard with different plantings.
I think this Recipezaar Website rocks!
