My tag line is, almost, the last words my mother said to me.  She’s laying on her deathbed just days away from going to Glory, suffering excruciating pain from pancreas cancer and she finally tells me I use too much garlic.  Typical Mom.  And funny as heck.

This blog is dedicated to her, Dorothea Marie Whelan Saavedra.

Mom insisted that each of her children learn to cook.  Controversy surrounds this insistence in our family – we, her children, wonder the percentage of desire to prepare us for the world versus that next Harlequin romance about all about Jed, Jovanna and heaving bosoms or something; as motivations for teaching us to cook dinner.

Nevertheless, we all cook.

Welcome to my e-Kitchen.

P.S. Mom’s last words to me were “Thank you.” and, of course, “I love you.”

    My husband tells me I use to much garlic, of course I believe you can never use to much garlic.

    Me neither. I love garlic. I even like it raw in small doses. Don’t ask how many heads I went through making the Thanksgiving meal.

    It’s just so typical of my Mom to have saved that comment up for last.

    We’re living parallel lives–writing about God and food. And I was born and raised in PG County. Love rock-like things, especially sea glass from the Chesapeake Bay. Indian food? Of course! We even follow some of the same blogs. Except I don’t think I use too much garlic.
