As a former restaurant owner, recipe columnist and now home cook, I love creating and sharing recipes. I’ve been encouraged by FaceBook friends to host a special section on my website so I may share recipes when I post pics on FB of dishes I prepare.

Some recipes are from cookbooks that are falling apart on my kitchen cookbook shelf. Some are gifts from my mom, Bonnie E. Lyons, who passed away December 2013 and some are from my Kiwi husband’s mum, Jean Ward, who was born in Scotland and passed away October 2013. Some recipes were developed by my husband Robert J. Ward while living in New Zealand.

I hope you enjoy these recipes and would love to hear about ideas you suggest to make them even better!
