Follow me on a journey through the Duxbury Free Library's cookbooks. Together we will explore new recipes, new cookbooks, and life's adventures through food.

Hi, my name is Lisa and I have been working at the Duxbury Free Library for about 3 years. I am the mother of 3. Two sons, 21 and 19 and a daughter, 10 (I know, what was I thinking). I am also the grandmother of a 2 year old girl (it wasn’t me that wasn’t thinking this time). I love to cook and have been doing so since I was able to climb up on a stool and help my grandmothers spread the pizza dough. I give them all the credit for inspiring my love of food and feeding people.

I have three passions in life; family, books, and cooking. In this blog I hope to share some of my insight into how I use each of these to enhance the others. Each week I will be trying a recipe from one of the cookbooks that we have here at the Duxbury Free Library and sharing the results with you. I will also be throwing in some hints, tips and ideas that I have accumulated for cooking and celebrating food.

Look for my first entry from a cookbook whose title made me smile, Cooking Light good mood food : cook up some feel-good vibes!. Coming soon.


  1. Lisa is THE best cook I know.
    I hope you give some tips about how to cook for large groups, Lisa.
    You are such an expert...!

  2. Thanks, Ellen. I hope I can live up to the expectations.

  3. Lisa, this is a wonderful blog. I want to bake now!
