I have a daughter in school in Peoria, IL.. it is a few hours from where we live, so we oftentimes stop for dinner on the way back from seeing her. This last weekend we stopped in Springfield, IL at a nice little place called "The Lakeside Grill". I
had one of their new menu items...…
I have 3 children, 1 granddaughter, 3 dogs, 3 horses, 2 mini's and a husband. I work for 3 of the best pediatricians in the universe at A to Z Pediatrics in
Caseyville, IL. I love my family, my pets, my husband and the entire staff at my office - and consider the whole lot of them family.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook anything. I love to bake anything. Just "playing" with all of my kitchen gadgets makes me happy. I love to measure and pour and sift and stir.. the whole process brings me joy, no matter the outcome.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I have never really had traditions... I know, it's sad. Now that I have a granddaughter I might have to start some. I hope she grows up loving to cook!!!
My cooking triumphs
When my boyfriend (now husband) told me how much he did not like chili.. and then proceeded to mow through 5 bowls of mine.. and he begs for it at least once a week now.. how's that for a major food conversion!!!
My cooking tragedies
A recipe for pasta that used smashed anchovies... even the dog wouldn't eat it!
