Welcome to My Recipes!

When Food Gets Sassy!

For years, I’ve been cooking for two large, hangry men: me & my partner, Paul. So I may know a thing or two about cooking…

We started out in a small garden apartment in Jackson, NJ. We absolutely loved it there, albeit it very small, we had the shore & Great Adventure.

The kitchen was the size of a postage stamp! pepper_red

But that didn’t hinder my abilities, at all… It actually helped me learn how to be quick & efficient. I know you’re thinking, “Ummm, it’s only the two of you…” And most times your thoughts would be correct.

In that 700 square foot apartment with the postage stamp kitchen, I once served a party of eight! That’s right – eight large boys like ourselves. I even made a flambé of Bananas Foster for dessert! Read a wee-bit more about that here.

I’ve studied books from Le Cordon Bleu all the way down to Rachael Ray! (My fave, btw!)

Not only have I served large parties from that kitchen, I once hosted a family Thanksgiving dinner. There were seven of us. I served wine & cheese along with a crudités & an assortment of appetizers. I cooked a 25lb bird to perfection with all the trimmings and 15<–yup! Count ’em, 15 hot side dishes! garlic_clip_art_12034

Everything (food) came out perfect & perfectly hot as I served it. As for how the dinner went…well, I did say it was a FAMILY gathering – didn’t I? To say the least, my part was done. A few family members are still not talking to one another & it has been over 10 years!

But my food came out fabulous!
