Recipe for family meals :

Asparagus Salmon Pie

This recipe comes from Karen ( Ilyce is her alias ) who is in a recipe club with between twenty and thirty members, the oldest of whom is eighty-six and the youngest is thirteen, who collect recipes and love to cook.

Karen told me that she is "thirty-four years old, single and loves to cook, among other things. I've been cooking and collecting recipes since I was in my teens and have a very big collection. I collect from magazines, friends, newspapers, brochures, advertising material, and product recipes, the net, recipe groups and a list of other places. If I've taken the recipes from the web or from a magazines, there should be a source but sometimes, over the years, it wasn't collected".

This recipe has come from the simplyseafood group at Yahoo - click here to visit - or to visit / join Karen's own group where she posts some of her other recipes exclusively click here.
