Hi everyone! My name is Deb and I am an empty nester with a not so empty nest. I share my home with my husband Jim, two dogs and two cats. Our son and daughter are off living their own happy lives and our pets definitely fill ours with joy!
12,000….that’s a big number. It is probably the minimum amount of dinners I have cooked over the years. If you add breakfasts, lunches and desserts, well, that’s a lot of food!
Does that make me an expert? Ummm, noooo. Have I made my share of burnt or bad tasting recipes? Absolutely!! What I do have is tons of experience and an overwhelming love of creating and tweaking recipes. And yet, I have never baked an apple pie, rarely cook fish and use spices and vegetables that I am familiar with and can spell.
I barely passed chemistry in high school, but I adore the science of baking and cooking. And if family and friends love my creations, the pleasure it brings me is immeasurable! My goal is to go outside my comfort zone and explore different cuisines and flavors.
I hope you will enjoy my recipes. I welcome feedback and would love to hear from you. If there is a recipe you’ve always wanted to try but didn’t have the time, energy or ingredients, let me know, I take requests!
