I live south of Portland Oregon. I'm a retired Nurse, and am enjoying my 5 grandchildren and my husband's 9 grands.

I am very good at baking desserts, but now that I am diabetic I have to be more careful!

Rhubarb Custard Pie

Rhubarb Custard Pie

Yum - only reason I tried this recipe was because I had rhubarb I wanted to use up. It turned out I didn't have enough so I used 1 Granny Smith with the rhubarb. It was amazing. Only other thing I would suggest is to cut the topping in half as that was a little to thick for my tastes. — kyoung1@twcny.rr.com 2/15/2014
Chicken Bacon Alfredo

Chicken Bacon Alfredo

I changed this up a bit but husband and I love this basic idea. I added broccoli, red pepper and sun dried tomatoes sautéing all with the chicken in a tablespoon of oil. Skipped the mayo too. Probably still heavy on fat, but delicious. — acechef 1/11/2014

I loved this. Don't worry about the vinegar. It works out and makes this a flavor treat!! Since the chicken was completely cooked I skipped the last step. This would be great for a crowd!!!! 6/7/2012

Wonderful. But I used whipped cream in place of cool whip. Yum!! — snowboardlovergirl 12/25/2011
Upside Down Apple Pecan Pie

Upside Down Apple Pecan Pie

Spectacularly showy dessert!! I like it better with home made crust. But if you're in a rush or not feeling well this is lovely. I put parchment paper in first then the pecan mixture because I think it comes out easier! 12/18/2011
