RECIPE SUBMITTED BY

I am now semi-retired and an Empty Nester. I try to focus on lighter dishes for day to day menus. I still like to explore new food ideas. I look for smaller quantity dishes now. I am not vegetarian but I cook with more vegetables than meat now. I enjoy sharing desserts with family and my co-workers.
