This blog started out as a letter.It was supposed to be an answer to a plea from a woman whose family was tired of macaroni and cheese and tuna sandwiches during Lent.I found myself writing recipes, techniques and explaining far more than would ever fit in a note. In the following years, I taught many people how to feed their loved ones and guests, those who had special need and simply how to entertain.When I entered into the food business, I expected to write a pamphlet, which in turn became the beginning of a book.
With the overwhelming numbers of celebrity chefs and just celebrities who have cookbooks on the market,I know that the likelihood of getting mine published is less than zero.The difference here is that my little blog will not ask you to put the flavor /herb/condiment of the year into every recipe, I will not ask you to use duck breast or the like ,(as one celeb’s book does), nor will I expect you to intuitively know about techniques. I want you to feel comfortable cooking real-people food for your family and to entertain in your home with a flair and confidence. I want to show you how this can be done quickly and sometimes, even more quickly, as I offer alternatives.
So , please bear with me while I turn what was going to be a book into a blog. I beg you to please ask any questions and I am open for suggestions. I am here to help.

[In addition, I would like to add that although I truly appreciate the camaraderie and warmth of the “awards” that make the rounds among we bloggers,I simply find myself without the time to participate.I am flattered and I care for my fellow-bloggers, my friends, and I hate to turn anyone down.I certainly do not ever want to avoid or ignore anyone who takes the time to read and respond to my posts, but with family and writing responsibilities,I find myself stretched even to post as much as I’d like on this blog.So, thank anyone who is generous enough to ant me to receive and award and play along, but ,I must decline.Thank you for understanding.]
