In addition to all else, Ralph enjoyed cooking.  The favorite dinner for Marilyn and Ralph was charcoaled steaks, baked potatoes and salad topped off with a vodka tonic for Ralph, and champagne with a strawberry for Marilyn.

We recently found some of Ralph's written and typed recipes from family, friends and travels accumulated over his lifetime.  We will post recipes here to help "spice" up your visits.
