If You Can Read, You Can Cook


I wanted to do something special for my daughter's 18th birthday. She had been wanting to learn to cook. I always tell her, "If you can read, you can cook.". She would just shake her head. But it's true. If you can read a recipe and can follow the directions then you can cook. As you are learning to make different recipes you will learn new skills, develop your taste buds and eventually start making up your own recipes. But, I digress! I decided to make a cookbook for Ryan's 18th birthday.

I always have Tilapia filets on hand in my freezer. They thaw quickly, and are so fast and easy to prepare. I cook them in so many different ways and this is one of my favorites. I hope your family will enjoy it as much as mine does!

A Person of Worth

Glass Awards

I was a really shy kid, afraid of my own shadow. I think that shyness is what led to my agoraphobia. The only thing I excelled at in elementary school was reading. I taught myself how to read when I was 2 and I have had my nose in a book ever since. Math continued to elude me until I reached college.

I DO Believe in Fairies!

Fairy Hobmother

When I was a little girl I read all of Grimm's Fairy Tales. My favorite was always the one about the Brownies that would help the tailor after he went to bed. The tailor would wake up surprised to see all of his work completed. I was envious and always wished that Brownies or Fairies would come to my house.

Love is in the Air!

Valentine's Gifts

Love is definitely in the air these days. I was reminded of that when I ran across www.globalrose.com, a site devoted to fresh flowers. The top selling gifts for Valentine's Day seem to be flowers, chocolates, jewelry and chocolate. Give me flowers and milk chocolate and I am yours!.

Tax Time

There are so many new changes in the tax law this year that it's hard to keep up! Have you had a chance to look at the new tax laws? It might even be worth it to take courses on the new tax laws using Online LL.M Programs.
