I'm a 50 year old country gal that loves to try new things. Not just in cooking but in life. I'm a wife, mother of three grown children, photographer, wood carver and gardner. I like being creative and I love running around in my Jeep and playing in the mud.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook a variety of things. From seafood to pasta, Irish to Mexican. .
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cooking with my family. My husband, daughters, grandchildren and even the boyfriends and hsbands join in. It's a time of sharing and laughter and big messes that everyone enjoys together. We enjoy cooking as a family and are often excited about trying new recipes
My cooking triumphs
My mother's recipes for Irish stew, clam chowder and potato salad always get me rave reviews.
My cooking tragedies
Breads. OMG, I am a complete flop. My mother and grandmother were fantastic bakers, I somehow did not inherit their knack. BUT I'll never give up trying. Look in my favorite recipes for a fantastic biscuit mix. Now I can make great biscuits. Next - homemade bread!
