My Kitchen

Check out all my new recipes below!

Come in, please! Welcome to my kitchen.
Let's sit and chat while the tea brews.

I love tea - strong tea and especially Earl Grey tea. My kitchen is my favorite room in the house. I love when it's cold outside and the aromas coming from the kitchen warm not only your appetite but your heart as well. Cooking and baking are high on my 'love to do' list. I've made two cookbooks over the years that are crammed full of family favorites. Casseroles, gooey desserts, and deep-dish pies are our all-time favorites! But I'm also fond of NEW ways to serve vegetables. Stay tuned!

Since you've come for tea let me share a new tea recipe I just found this winter. And after that we'll try some breakfast dishes that are our favorites. I hope to add new recipes each month, so stop by again, and see what's cookin' for lunch - then dinner. And, of course, we have dessert with every meal! Doesn't everyone?

Happy cooking --and eating!

Fresh from the publisher, My new cookbook, jammed packed full of more family favorites. There are lots of cooking helps in the beginning, plus 3 blank pages after each section to write in new or favorite recipes your family likes.

Unlike most cookbooks that have 6 or 7 categories, this one has 17! Everything from Appetizers, Snacks & Dips to Cakes & Icings, to Casseroles With and Without Meats to Salads, Soups and Vegetables (and 9 more in between!). There is something for everyone here. You can order it on line by printing out the order form and mailing it to me, or you can email or call. The price of each book is $15.
