About KarenDemers
Joined March 2015
Well, I've prepared many resumes in my professional life but never have I been asked to write a personal profile...this will be interesting.
While my background is in estate planning, trusts, wills, marketing and investment management...I have always enjoyed preparing delicious meals. What I don't enjoy, after a long day, is spending hours in the kitchen or trying to follow intricate recipes. I like short cuts. I like great meal ideas that can be prepared quickly... but taste absolutely delicious.
My interests and hobbies over the years have been quite varied... from downhill skiing, cross country skiing, racket ball, tennis, racing my 1965 911 Porsche on tracks all over the US... to gardening and being part of the "pit crew" for my daughter's many golf tournaments around the country.
At the end of a hectic day at work or coming home from a trip...it all comes back to a delicious quick meal to enjoy with those you love while reflecting on what's been going on or what's around the corner.

I invite you to visit www.easymealrecipesandmore.com © where you'll find several interesting and informative blogs on various topics I know you'll enjoy. And you'll find delicious and easy to prepare recipes to make for dinner tonight that will become family favorites. Bookmark this site and come back often as I'm often publishing a new blog, adding memories and more homemade delights.

Leave comments on what you try and if you have a recipe that you'd love to know how to prepare...let me know and I'll help you find it.

So, please check out my site www.easymealrecipesandmore.com © and make something amazing today.

Hi Karen, nice to meet you! I come from a family of foodies, and our starting point for every great meal is always quality primary ingredients and good company. Every intricacy and elaboration beyond this is just extra.

Fine food can take as short or as long as you like, but it always begins with quality in the simplest things. We could probably think of our blogs in the same way!

Karen, newbie here. I’m only just in the process of setting up my blogging activity, and have everything under a ‘coming soon’ blanket! I’m awaiting academic advice and approval for survey activity, so it will be a few weeks before I can share any links. Sorry to disappoint! I promise to spam you in the near future. :)

Hi Karen,

Great to meet you and I will sure check out easymealrecipesandmore. I do all the cooking in our household and always looking out for more ideas. Especially for my fussy 21-year-old daughter. A PAIN!!!

And you are correct, very interesting profile and a nice one too.

I wish you and your family all the very best and I thank you for following me.

Cheers,

Brad

Thank you, Brad. I know exactly how fussy a 21 yr old can be...but relax as it won't last forever.

Thanks Karen,

I should have mentioned my daughter is 21 going on 14. So looks like I have extra time. However, all good. She is a happy and good kid.

Wow, a 1965 Porsche 911. What excellent taste :) - I absolutely love Porsche!!

And your daughter is an avid golfer - she looks to be a very accomplished one too with that large trophy in her hands (I am assuming that's your daughter in your profile pic). Well done!

Thanks for sharing your website too - it looks like you've been very active preparing easy meal recipes :)

Wishing you all the very best,

Hi Karen, thank you for following! I will follow you back and I love your profile! Sounds like you have done some exciting things!
Cooking is something I did because I had to while my girls were growing up. Now I am not a big fan of the kitchen - however I would love to learn how to cook easy and simple vegan meals. Any ideas would be appreciated!

Great to meet you!

Blessings,

Hi Karen, thank you for including me in your network.
I will most definitely check out your website as I am always looking for quick and easy recipes to conjure up in my kitchen, so your site will probably be one I will visit often.

If you are one that shops on Amazon, take a peek at my site at https://healthyemerald.com I created it right here at Wealthy Affiliate.

W.A members help each other out by purchasing from each other's sites, and why not? It's an easy way to check out the work we do here, and at the same time order the items we need.

Thanks again for your follow, looking forward to seeing you around the site.

Kind Regards,

There is a famous quote from Mark Twain:

"If it's your job to eat a frog, it's best to do it first thing in the morning. And if it's your job to eat two frogs, it's best to eat the biggest one first."

And that just means - do your hardest task first or at least as soon as you can in the morning. If you do this then the rest of your day is easy from there!

ANYWAY…

Hello, Karen thanks for the follow and welcome to WA. You are definitely in the right place!

People have plenty to share and there is plenty to learn also so take your time and enjoy the experience.

I may not be among the top 200 list anymore (because I don’t socialize here much) but I do have many interesting posts on my site (no seriously I do) and some you might really like, many people do. I have over 4,000 positive comments, so take a look and get some ideas as to what you can do with your site.

Let me know if I can help you in any way

Cheers Peter :)

Thank you for the follow Karen. Love your niche.. Who wouldn't love a quick and delicious home cooked meal.We eat at home 95% of the time, not only due to the cost of eating out but if you are health conscience, you want to know what your eating.With the gmo's preservatives,sugar, salt and non-organic ingredients in the foods today, people are more insecure about eating out than ever. Best wishes in 2017 and beyond. Stay healthy and happy. livingsuperhealthy.com :) Judy

Hi, Judy...I totally agree with you. I don't trust labels anymore...it may say "organic" on the label but when you do the research, you find out it's not in many cases.
I published a series of blogs on what foods we should be eating which you may find interesting. I hope you will check them out and let me know your thoughts.

Thank you for following me. I love your active lifestyle and, of course, delicious meals. I am a fan of high-flavor and light eating. That is why my favorite restaurant locally is a Thai/Vietnamese venue. I love the Tom Ka and Tom Yum (or something like that) soups.
I will check out your website and likely try a recipe or two.

Thank you, Patricia, for following me back. I love Thai as well as Indian dishes. One of my favorite restaurants (albeit over 900 miles away) is Blue Taj in Charlotte NC and whenever I'm in the Charlotte area, I just have to eat there.

Thanx for the follow and I have done the same for(to) you!

I have a fairly large group of recipes I like and have alerts set up for them to my email. I do the dinner cooking at our home and am always looking for different things for my heart condition and my wife's diabetes.

I appreciate your site and have found a new use for double lines of tabs!

Karen, hello there and thank you for the follow I enjoyed your profile read especially the part of racing your Porsche on tracks around the US. I have a bucket list and one day I want to drive a race car on a track I'm hoping that through WA and my success here I will be able to fulfill my bucket list. I also liked the fact that you created a page for easy delicious recipes I will definitely be taking a look there I love to cook.

Hi Karen, they say the way to a mans heart is through his stomach, while this might be true having a daughter that is a great golfer is the way to mine. I am a total golf fanatic and as we speak I am watching the Ryder Cup probably the only time I would rather be watching than playing. You must be so proud, what is her first name so that I can follow her on tour. All the best for your and her future.
Reply
KarenDemers Premium
We were watching the Ryder Cup also...first time we've won in 8 years. I'm so disappointed with those rude Americans...no excuse for that.
Much to our regret, our daughter decided not to play on tour but did play all through college.

Hi, Karen,

You have a very interesting and full life! Thanks for sharing and I KNOW you will have success at this online marketing business...

I am a bit like you when it comes to cooking...I love it - personally, I started out as a trained chef too many years ago to talk about...

This was after the high school years where you do any kind of job to get some gas in the car hehe...

Good to "meet" you here, and I look forward to learning more!

Cheers!

Thanks, Dave. I remember reading a response you left someone where you used the word "handle" which made me laugh. I assumed you were referring to a CB handle, and haven't heard that word in ages. I used to have a CB radio in my car years ago which saved me numerous times from "bears".

Good evening to you Karen, my name is Ken and I welcome you to WA and thank you for the follow. I'm following you back! I have recently received my will in the mail by recommendations from Dave Ramsey. It is a State specific will, but It came with no instructions so, lol, I understand to some degree the experience you have. I could sure use your help...

Karen, you know there is a big "Going Green" movement. It includes good foods, renewable power/energy, healthy living by being frugal, etc. In fact, A very recent member to WA gave me a link to his website, Nicksfavoriterecipies.com. He is a chef in Louisiana and he really has some very good recipes. Something to think about. Combine healthy foods in easy recipes to get more people to eat healthier. That is the best detox for the body, anyway.

I look forward to working with you and helping you any way you may need. I wish you much pleasure in reaching your goals and becoming successful.
Ken

KarenDemers Premium
Hello, Ken...I never heard of Dave Ramsey. Is he an attorney? If he isn't, he doesn't have the authority to draft a will which is a legal document. I've also never heard of the term "State specific" will...what does he mean by this? Did he appoint himself as Executor?
My advice to you would be to make an appointment with an attorney who specializes in wills, trusts and estates. Depending on your net worth, types of investments and what assets you have determines what you need to have in place.
Both you as well as your wife should have a will and if you own property, etc. etc. you should think about setting up a trust first.
Best wishes,
Karen

kmer6 Premium
Thank you for your reply and suggestions. I, however, don't trust Attorneys and they cost too much. The legal forms I purchased and received through email were sent from USLegalForms.com. These forms are legal forms recommended by Dave Ramsey, which is a very popular radio financial advisor host. If you never heard of him that is your loss. Mr. Ramsey is old school, but his advice is sound.
I appreciate your opinion and good judgement. I know you will do very well setting up shop here at WA and we are lucky to have you. I wish you much success and good fortune in fulfilling your goals.
