This year, we are minus many family members to one destination or another so... the few that are left will gather for an intimate get together this Christmas dinner.  The 30+ attendance is whittled down to 7 adults and 3 kiddos!  Sooooo, we were thinking about setting out … MORE

To convection....or NOT to convection,  That is my question!  I sheepishly admit that I am a little afraid to make full use of my gas convection ovens.  Sure, I use them for such new fangled things as frozen pizzas & eggrolls, but I tend to stick to old school,… MORE

1.    How do you like your eggs?  Start frying them in butter, just after the white starts to set, break the yolk....wait for it.......then scramble ever so slightly once or twice, take off the heat before they dry out.  How do you even order that in a restaraunt???… MORE

While browsing recipes, I often find rants, instead of reviews, from cooks who find it foul for a reviewer to base their stars on anything other than the originally published recipe.  This leads me to wonder.... How do fellow AF fans generally feel about the 2 types of reviews… MORE

About Me
Well, let's see....I'm 31, 3 kiddos (girl 10, girl 7, boy, 2) & married for 13 years to my high school sweetheart. I grew up in a very small town with my grandma & grandpa, an only child & a tomboy. There's the background, nowadays I'm a conservative housewife. I stayed home for 9 years & then worked for a year or so as a waitress. I was surrounded by teenieboppers...their phones, texting, Myspace, & drama.... Boy was that fun! :o) I quit to take care of my home, kids, & poor neglected husband. 1 year put me sooo far behind! Now I'm addicted to Allrecipes, we hardly ever eat the same meal twice in 2 weeks! :o)
My favorite things to cook
Beef tongue, cuz it's a little weird :o) I get an odd kick out of making mediocre chinese food at home.
My cooking triumphs
Whenever I'm able to make an ingredient from scratch, it's sooo very exciting! You know, the ones we all take for granted...all fully processed & packaged up in their wrappings. I'm always amazed at how simple most of them are to make at home and it always gives me a warm fuzzy feeling to know I pulled it off! Oh, and every time my DH says..."Man honey, this is good!"
My cooking tragedies
Every time I cook it ends in tragedy of one degree or another. I'm really bad about burning myself. I set the oven afire fairly often and am covered in scars from the elbows down. I could get away with murder as I haven't a distinguishable fingerprint to my name. Good thing I'm a nice person :o)
