    About Me

    I'm an RN, currently on leave since my 23-year old son passed away last year.
    I love to cook, hate to bake, like to can when I can obtain large amounts of things.

    I have always thought of myself as a fair homestyle cook, nothing fancy or "new age". I lived in LA for 5 years and picked up some pretty good recipes for Mexican food, which my family here in Boston love when we have a Mexican Feast. When my second son was born, I did work for a caterer for a year, cooking for the (then) governor of MA political events, and one time for a party given by Frank Purdue at the Boston Aquarium!
    I guess I'd have to say that I'm probably famous (among those who KNOW of me) for my "Ma's Minestrone"

    I have MANY interests and hobbies! I seem to "rotate" through them regularly, start getting a craving to do something again if it's been a while. I knit, do counted cross-stitch, crewel, embroidery, needlepoint, scrapbooking, beading, quilting. I also do genealogy - have been working on my family tree for 35 years! 15 generations on several lines and a research trip to Scotland are my crowning achievements! I own an old house, so have learned alot about do-it-yourself remodeling. My assortment of powertools is mind-boggling.(and I know how to use them all!) I refinish orphaned furniture from yard sales and thrift stores and have caned many a chair seat! I also do alot of reading, almost always novels - medical thrillers, mysteries, and my favorite: historical novels. Love Stephen King.

    Favorite Foods

    I love anything "savory"
    Much prefer filling, satisfying comfort-type foods.
    If I had to choose ONE food to have as the only thing to eat on a deserted island, it would be PIZZA! Philly Cheesesteak or cheeseburger, to be specific!
    I will usually pass on dessert, except if it's ice cream!

    FYI, any recipes I post will have been made by me at some point in time. I see no point in posting something I haven't determined to be 5 stars in my book!   My pet peeve, here on 'Zaar, is seeing a recipe posted without having been made by the poster! I've even seen recipes that the poster later amended saying "I finally tried this, it's horrible, but I can't delete it!"
