Dear friends and visitors to this website:   Welcome to some of the finest Recipes ideas, that allow you to create your own dishes.   Most of the recipes have been written with humour and include background stories, allowing you to have some fun while cooking. Eventually, who knows, that hidden gourmet within you will emerge.  Pictures of dinner parties may float in your head; impress friends, lovers, mother-in-law, etc., etc. There are also product endorsements and suggestions with respect to using them. This is an opportunity for anyone to become familiar with products, methods and variations in preparing them.  We welcome everyone from beginners to professionals. There is something for everyone.  I would like you to know that lots of effort, patience and understanding, including research of information in preparation of each Recipe and its related ingredients have been applied into this project. It was not an overnight mission or achievement because none of the Recipes  are cut and paste from related websites.  Over the years, I have created many  recipes. I always have one thing in my mind when creating a recipe: I visualize that I am speaking to a beginner because people who know how to cook do not need my instructions they only need the best ingredients to work with.  I also have to mention that over the years, I have had numerous individuals correspond with me, by phone or my mail, locally, nationally or internationally, informing me that, for instance, their spouse who always did the cooking passed away recently, and that while looking through the cupboards they have found a can of beans or peas, a bag of flour or some product that they do not know what to do with. Usually those people are the types who have no idea of what a casserole is, or a spatula, how to boil water or even turn on the stove. Therefore, they are quite comfortable with the details in my recipes that allow them to become familiar with the cooking process, step-by-step, and that eventually, they would be able to do a variety of cooking.
