    About Me

    I am the Mom of "A la Carte" and her sister, and grandmother (hence "Gammy") of two GREAT kids! (Aren't they all?) I've always enjoyed cooking & baking and have been getting lots of great ideas from Recipe Zaar.

    My DH & I live in a rural area with our dog & cat, and we spend lots of time with family & friends which is our most cherished recreational activity! Aside from that we love it when we find time for get-aways near or far. We like hiking, X-C skiing, snow shoeing, and summer vacations in Maine were a family tradition for many years. We love to read, travel, and garden (well, me anyway!) We're into wildlife in general, and avid birders here at home - or far afield, when we get the chance.

    I learned to cook from my mother & grandmother, who were constantly trying out new recipes along with preparing old family favorites. Now that our own daughters are grown and great cooks themselves, rarely a day goes by that one or the other of us doesn't share a new recipe or call with a cooking question! We all do a lot of improvising & also like many different cuisines. I have a gazillion cookbooks but if there's one cookbook I couldn't live without, it would be the old standby "Joy of Cooking". My mother in law gave me my first copy when we were first married, and an updated edotion a few years ago.

    Favorite Foods

    It would be hard for me to name one favorite food or dish - the usual juicy rare tenderloin steak, whole lobster, vegetables in any form, fruit desserts all do it for me. Give me a Ceasar salad & a good steak or take me to a lobster pound for steamers, a lobster & Maine blueberry pie a la mode & I'm a happy woman!

    Being a new member, I only have a few recipes posted so far, but I hope to share more of them in the weeks ahead. A couple of my favorite recipes to make are Port-Marinated Beef Tenderloin with Cranberries (it's posted in A la Carte's RZ page) and Roasted Scallops or Shrimp with Tomato which is great served with "Sauce Choron".
