Meet the Author

Hi my name is Aileen and it’s great to see you here sharing my recipes.  I have been cooking since I was a teen.  My Mom put a home cooked meal on the table every night and so do I (it’s a challenge when you work full time, but it is well worth it!).  I love food – I love making it, I love eating it.  I love how it brings people together.  My most favorite thing to do is share a meal with family and friends.  And we often end up talking about other food while we are eating this food.

There’s pretty much nothing I can’t make, though I really prefer cooking savory meals to baking.  I have made it all from scratch at one time or another and still cook mainly this way.  I have a discerning palate and a taste for spicing things just the right way.  My recipes are definitely not bland and that helps when creating satisfying meals – your mouth knows it ate after it’s done with one of my meals.

I was blessed with a great metabolism and for years and years ate anything I wished without gaining an ounce.  From 35 forward I gained a few pounds here and a few pounds there and then after age 40 my metabolism came to a screeching halt and I could just not get off the compounded weight with just plain exercise.  A drastic plan was needed….so here I am, 40 something and trying to make my world right by creating recipes that satisfy yet still fall into a healthful lifestyle.
