What’s more refreshing than Lemon Bars for dessert?
What could be more healthy than gluten free and dairy free?
Please meet a foodie friend: Kay Gammone. She’s the guest chef in the August edition of LETTERS from Linda.
Just a few words about myself. I was born in 1958 ,to an Irish/American father and a Japanese mother. My love of cooking came about because my mother was a head cook in Madison, Wisconsin at a Mafia operated restaurant. That was in the late 50’s. I loved watching her cook. She never measured anything.
