It's that time of year. All Hallow's Eve is approaching and I would love to hear your ghost stories and other happenings. Some stories are creepy, some can be scarey and some can be nice knowing a loved one is near while others are just unexplainable. Whatever your story is that you would… MORE

This blog is posted because a thread recentley brought up the subject of using bunny poo fertilizer. I have a bunny and one of the ways I support my favorite rescue group for rabbits is to write articles for their bi-annual newsletter. Below is the piece I wrote. My sincere apologies are… MORE

When I received December's activities for Allrecipes Allstars, "Cookies Across America" was the #1 activity. I understood "Cookies Across America" to be a sharing activity ... an activity in which one baked and shared goodies or gave those baking ingredients to another less fortunate. Simply… MORE

I was doing a little research regarding the problem of the famous chocolate chip cookie recipe that Ruth Graves Wakefield baked up by accident in 1937 spreading too flat for me when I bake them. I love Nestle Toll House Cookies but am at times disappointed that they spread out flat but… MORE

About Me
I love looking at and collecting recipes and have been doing so since I was a kid. Everytime I came across something someone made that I enjoyed I would ask for the recipe. I have a nice collection now and sometimes find it funny looking at a recipe that I thought was so good or intersting then and thinking now "I liked that?".
My favorite things to cook
Homemade pizza with fresh homemade dough. My next favorite is a pot of "Sunday" sauce and meatballs. I love how good my home smells while it's cooking and love dipping hunks of crusty bread into the sauce for a taste.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Stuffing for a holiday turkey. You just can't top homemade stuffing.
My cooking triumphs
Roasting a turkey. I was always intimidated. I didn't roast a turkey until several years ago and to my surprise it came out great. A girlfriend from work taught me. Made turkey soup with the leftovers and again surprised myself because it was delicious. I never knew homemade turkey soup could be so good.
My cooking tragedies
I've had enough but at least learned.
