I live on the outskirts of a little village in the fast growing county of Loudoun. We have a very private setting which I love but I hate that I have to use the car to go everywhere. My husband and I enjoy both foreign and domestic travel, hiking and biking, fine dining and cooking at home. My husband is quite the beer enthusiast and experiments with his own microbrews. We both enjoy good Belgians. Before children I cooked a lot. As the kids hit the teenage years it seemed that all they liked was mac & cheese, hamburgers and hotdogs, and spaghetti ... my cooking efforts were largely unappreciated so I scaled down my cooking to several staple recipes. Now that the kids are gone my culinary interests are being rekindled. I've always enjoyed good food and, given the choice, will always opt for vegetarian or fish dishes. I also enjoy baking ... recently found a great book -- Small Batch Baking -- so that I can indulge my sweet tooth in moderation. Any well prepared fish. Vegan and vegetarian recipes (light on the cheese).

Hey JonL, I have no control over pictures that others post. That being said, I appreciate that debapaka took the time to post a picture of my recipe and sure that even thought she baked it in a round pan, it tasted just as good as if it had been baked in a square pan! — JRWLPC 8/20/2012

The Best Peanut Butter Cookies Ever

This looks almost exactly like the recipe I always use for peanut butter cookies and they are wonderful. The only difference is the amount of flour you suggest. Are you sure it is only 1/2 cup of flour and not 1-1/2 cups? 4/28/2008
