I am a retired elementary school teacher who is lovin life.I like to read, swim, travel to new and familiar places and of course I enjoy cooking for an appreciative audience! Mmmmm, it's hard to pin me down to a favorite food. I really just love most foods, but I do crave sweets and there is nothing like that first bite of a perfectly made fruit galette still warm from the oven..( of course, somebody else has to make it!) As far as foods I like to make the most, maybe that would be anything I know the people I cook for will enjoy, like chocolate cookies for my grown up son, mashed potatoes au gratin for my sister and halibut with pesto butter for the man in my life.

This was delicious! I was worried the entire time it was cooking that it was too watery and oniony, but in the end...wonderful! I did add 1 extra cup of potatoes and some lemon pepper. I could eat it every night! — LadyJay 1/25/2012

Best Ever Blueberry Coffee Cake

Loved this recipe..the company devoured it! It baked in 50 minutes and would be so good with whipped cream or ice cream, or, of course, coffee. — webtexan 8/5/2011
Baked Zucchini with Tomatoes

Baked Zucchini with Tomatoes

This dish was easy, summery and delicious! I omitted the pepper as i didn't have one and sprinkled it with grated cheese during the last few minutes of cooking, just to add some punch. Yum! 8/4/2011
Lemon-garlic Shrimp Skewers

Lemon-garlic Shrimp Skewers

This is the very first recipe I have tried on Big Oven and my very first review. It was terrific! We made it as a main course and it was a big hit..easy and delicious...I plan on making it as an appetizer this Friday night for company. The gas grill worked great. I did chop the garlic quite fine. — lisacrooke 7/28/2011
