Loads of recipes soon from my recipe column of 45 years ago. Called Kitchen Chatter- it was in the Saginaw Township News- a small community - wrote for them for 17 years, and 3 cookbooks came from that column. Hope to see you here.

Good morning everyone...

Just heard from Peg of Family Favorites and she ask me to relay this message to you all that have been wondering what happened to her. These are her words and thoughts.

"Everything is going quite well with my mom. Unfortunately, about the time that we were able to feel confident in her recovery, I ruptured 2 discs in my lower back. It has to be one of the most painful things I've ever had happen.
In early March, I was misdiagnosed twice, which was a nightmare. I finally found a specialist 3 weeks ago who has been fantastic. I literally was stuck laying on my side in bed for 6 weeks until I found a coompetent doctor, which meant no laptop
This week, I am finally able to leave the house, go out for a short lunch and even get a haircut!(Haha! Darn vanity!) I can only sit for very short periods of time, and can't really use my laptop in bed. So, if you would, please pass on to everyone that I'm still alive and kicking, but sadly, I haven't been able to play in my kitchen since the first week in March=(I will be having a second caudal epidural tomorrow morning and I'm hoping to continue on this path of healing.
I'm able to use my laptop a little more each day, and hope to be messing around in my kitchen very soon! I sure miss cooking, and especially all of you." Peg

Please keep Peg and her family in your prayers and thoughts...hugs Pat
