Thanks for the intro Julie.  I have loved every recipe that Julie has posted so far so I am really excited that she is letting me join in the fun. I am also really excited to have my favorite recipies all in the same place. 

I love to cook. It is something that I discovered after I was married…along with the fact that salad was more then iceberg and ranch, veggies taste good and that I actually DID like onions and tomatoes.  I have tried every style of cooking and pretty much enjoy the process.  Some people garden, others exercise when they need to relax, I cook.  I have a few cooking rules. The first one is that it has to be easy. I realize that my idea of easy might be different then other people’s but on the whole I like  things that give me lots of results for minimal time and money. I also cater, so the second rule is that I like recipes that are cost effective.  Last, I believe in using real, fresh ingredients. I cook with butter and cream (but always offer the low fat/no fat solution). It just makes things taste better and it look better.  I was also raised in the south where cooking without cream and butter is worse then skipping church.   :-)  We are a health conscious family but we like to indulge now and then.  Mostly I stick to a core group of recipes and occasionally I branch out.   I am half old school cooking (yummy things like Tater Tot casserole and other grandma food) and half “try new things”.  

Summer recipies coming right up–before we loose the nice weather!!

    I didn’t know you catered. I’ve decided that instead of being a chef one day, I might just cater. Fun. Can’t wait for the recipes. And feel free to make this place a little prettier – in all your spare time!
