Recipes copy

Each week we will have two recipe days.  I hope that you will find these recipes delicious, and most importantly easy to do.  These are not only for newlyweds or “younger people”, but for anybody who is perhaps “culinarily challenged” (like myself!).

The recipes will be the concoctions of our fictitious cartoon comic chef extraordinaire and Sheri’s neighbor and cooking mentor, Chef Chumley.  Click here for the introduction to our “Cooked Comics”.

Each recipe day will feature an easy to follow recipe and a “Cooked Comic”.  These comics are purely for your amusement and pleasure, and each comic is usually independent of the recipe.
