Recipes and sharing them with friends

Let the sharing begin

Connie baking

I plan to share with you any recipes that I think you'd enjoy. I've been lucky over the years some of my favorites have been given to me by friends.

We've all tasted dishes that we want to try making ourselves. Friends are usually flattered and happy that you liked what they served. I have found them more than willing to share what they've made with me.

I'm no different. It makes me happy to contribute one of my own dishes to someone's collection. This web site is all about sharing with friends.

I was a hair stylist when I lived in Pittsburgh. I was talking to women all day long. A group of women together always seem to end up talking about food.

Almost every Saturday each of the hair stylists would bring a food item to work. We were lucky to have a big back room that we used as a kitchen.

I carried my “set it and forget it” rotisserie in to work almost weekly. Eventually I bought a second one of Ron Popiel's rotisseries and just left it there.

We cooked chicken, ham even duck in that oven. The wonderful smells drifting out into the salon area started many a food discussion.

My friend Denise makes the best tossed salad I even tasted. Val, who never cooked herself, would bring in the most wonderful pies that her husband made.

All the girls wanted Diane to bring our favorite jello dessert.

Everything Evelyn made was delicious, but we always coaxed her to bring ham barbeque. When she did Nola made the best potato salad to go with it.

Debbie got a lot of laughs when she said she'd bring fresh buns one day. She brought in frozen buns and has been teased to death ever since. Debbie thinks frozen is fresh? She is permanently off of all bread assignments.

I often brought in iced tea for us. You can see we all got involved and we all shared our favorites.

If you follow my blog, you already know our customers were generous with their special dishes too. My very first blog entry was one for scones. It was given to me by a long time customer of mine. Her name is Martha Bosley, and I love her scones.

I'll be adding another one today. This is one I found on the joy of baking web site. These are the best chocolate scones that I've made so far. These scones came from Stephanie Jaworski. She has given me permission to share it with my readers.

If you'd like to contribute one of your favorites to our web friends send them to me here.

PS: I miss you guys and our Saturday lunches.
PPS: Eve, I lost the barbeque recipe. HELP
