About this book:

Empty tables beg for nice dishes.  Empty dishes beg for tasty food.  Let’s fill them up and eat.

International symbol for Diabetes is  on each recipe that is diabetes friendly

Gen 9:2-3 ... all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air, .. every creature that moves along the ground, and .. all the fish of the sea; they are given into your hands. Everything that lives and moves will be food for you. Just as I gave you the green plants, I now give you everything.

Mayo Clinic & Cleveland Institute have tested foods and found that Fresh, Frozen and Canned all have the same vitamin content.  Get what tastes the best to you.

Make each recipe your own - according to your family's Taste bud's. 

When our children left home in 1987, they ask me to write a cookbook for them because they loved the recipe’s I had made over the years. Since I just threw stuff in the pot or bowl, I had no idea what the measurements were in my recipes. Starting in 1987, I had to make each recipe’. I would throw an ingredient in a bowl and then measure it before I put it in each recipe. Since I like cookbooks with pictures, I took pictures of each dish.  It took me from 1987 to 2005 to finish this cookbook.  Since I love to cook, it was a labor of love.

Funny thing is that my children only use the recipes occasionally; but my grandchildren use them all the time.  My grandsons & one granddaughter have called me from the grocery store and asked what they need to purchase to make a certain recipe.  Christopher my youngest grandson wants to go to culinary school to be a chef.  Eventually he wants to own his own restaurant.  He loves to cook.

Real butter is healthier than butter substitutes. Multi-vitamins are not as healthy as food.

Red wine is healthy: One glass a day for  women and two glasses a day for men.

When Al & I got married, I knew how to cook basic meat & potato meals. I was raised on a farm where we ate what we grew or raised and butchered. My Grandmother taught me how to make cornbread and my Mom taught me how to make biscuits. I learned how to cook some things in Home Economics. Still, they were just basic things. My husband loved Italian food and other ethnic dishes. I had never even heard of the spices. We used salt, pepper & Sage at home.

I could not afford a cookbook when we first married. I would cook something, Al would take a bite and tell me how good it was.  I would take a bite and cry because it was either not done or burned.  Since Al was so gracious, I prayed and asked God to help me become a good cook.  He would reveal spices to me and give me pictures in my head of certain recipes.  My recipes are inspired by my Heavenly Father.

In 1999 I tried to find a book that told what vitamins were in each food item. I could not find one. I got a little information here and there. I decided to add the information to the recipes I was still working on. I did not put the daily allowance per item with the recipes. I do not know how to do that. I just list the vitamins in each item on the recipe page.

If you eat a balanced diet, you will not need multi-vitamins.  When you are on a balanced diet, multi-vitamins can be toxic to you and make you feel nauseated and generally ill. 

May God bless the hands that prepare the food at your house and may each dish taste the way it should.  I pray whatever you prepare will do no harm; but will nourish those who partake and keep them healthy.
