I have been married to Tom since 1980. We are active in our church with such things as choir and evangelism. I became a consultant for Pampered Chef, Ltd. in 2007.
My favorite things to cook
I love to make desserts, especially fancy ones!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I came from a long line of wonderful Pennsylvania Dutch cooks including my mom, my grandmother and my great grandmother. My great grandmother taught me to make pie dough. She gave me a recipe about which she said, "You could march through this dough in your army boots and it will still come out flaky and tender." She was right!
My cooking triumphs
Cheesecakes are my specialty. I can also grill a mean steak.
My cooking tragedies
One time I tried to create a recipe for "Lemon Rice". Though it's the only time my husband ever said this, he asked me to please never make that again.
