In addition to The Renaissance Cokery Book, published by Hearts & Tummies, I now have 4 new e-cookbooks available on Amazon, priced at only .99 each!

One of my favorite ways to relax, has always been reading cookbooks. Since I retired in 2012, I've been collecting, testing and editing the recipes that appeal to me. My e-cookbooks are the result of those efforts. Please check them out on Amazon.

I made the best baked potatoes last night. I cut the potatoes accordion style then mixed about a tablespoon of Wind Willow Smokehouse Bacon and Cheddar Cheeseball mix with a couple tablespoons each of olive oil and melted butter. I cooked the potatoes in the microwave for about 5 minutes then put them in a baking dish and drizzled the oil mixture over them, working it down between the slices with a butter knife. I baked at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes then reduced the heat to 300 degrees until the rest of dinner was done. We had grilled pork chops with them. Those were good too. I patted the pork chops dry and dredged them through a mixture of olive oil, seasoned salt and lots of pepper before putting them on the grill.

Sheila's Lasagna
I used to make Lasagna by starting with the Chef-Boyardee Lasagna kit and adding ground beef, Mozzarella Cheese, Cottage Cheese, Parmesan Cheese and a little catsup. I loved the taste and it was easy to prepare. Then a terrible thing happened. Chef-Boyardee stopped making their Lasagna kit.  That was several years ago and I've been searching for a Lasagna recipe that tastes similar and is easy to prepare ever since.  I finally found one I am happy with. You'll find it on my Recipes page.
