    Cooking Is A Way To Share Love

    When I was growing up, my Mom worked full time. She wasn't a bad cook, but never really did a lot of it. We never had much of any cooking or baking supplies in the house because we dined out a lot. I was home alone a lot of the time taking care of my sister. If we wanted to eat...

    When I cut up the bird

    before I roast it, it's called butchering or breaking down. When I cut the bird up after roasting, it's called carving. I wonder why - surely there's a Jerry Seinfeld joke there somewhere.

    I didn't cook this. I am eating Chef Boyardee's

    canned lasagna with the pop up tab on the can. I cannot open pop-up-tab cans and I have a hard time using manual can openers. I used an electric can opener and was able to open the lasagna. :) I am so excited that I just wanted to come and share it with fellow food fans.

    Years ago I stopped eating most meats,

    just didn't care for them. Since then I've learned to cook very healthy and tasty vegetarian, and some vegan foods. My favorite recipe, and a simple one, is a meatless Chili. Anyone here have recipes they would like to exchange?
