I'm a retired Desktop Publishing Manager now living at the beach. Cooking is my first interest as far as activities go, but reading is my first love. My husband and I live with three cats a mile off the beach, and are enjoying our retirement. My favorite cookbook is my own, "My Kosher Cookbook." It will probably never be complete, as I add new recipes to it regularly. When I haven't planned something for a meal, instead of reaching for the cookbook I frequently just create something new from the ingredients I have on hand. My cookbook is now more than 300 pages and growing (there's only one recipe per page). I love passing on my hard-earned cooking knowledge and skills to younger "chefs in training." I'm best known for my "Millionaire's Pie," "100% Whole Wheat Sour Cream Biscuits," "Chicken in Brandy-Cream Sauce," and my "No-flour Oatmeal Cookies." I plan to post those recipes on this site for everyone to enjoy. I recently learned that I am "sensitive to wheat," so I'm learning how to cook with alternate flours and gluten. I also love finding or creating recipes that use very few ingredients. It took me years to learn that the secret to good cooking is flavor! Everyone can easily cook dishes that are as good as anything you can get in a good restaurant, with very little effort and minimal cooking skills, and for a whole lot less money! My worst habit is trying out new recipes on company. That has burned me a few times!
