About Us


Hearty & Healthy Polish Cooking is at the publisher for the final edit.  The e-book will be available in many on line stores & pages where e-books are sold.  The book contains dozens of pictures and dozens of recipes with a nice selection of written articles to supply additional information & humor.

















I will be continuing my evening courses at the Matteson Area District Public Library through the year.


Every other Tuesday at 11am I am at the Cicero Senior Center, check the events page for specific dates and topics.
