I'm having withdrawals.  I wander around in circles not knowing what to do.  It's painful.  The pages of my favorite cooking magazines are worn from flipping through for lack of boredom.  There is now not a single question or doubt in my mind as to where my passion lies.  It's in the kitchen,… MORE

Hello AR peeps!  I'm sorry I've missed out on several of your stories over the past month.  I truly mean that!  What was looking to be a wonderful summer has turned out to be one disaster after another.  I've had to keep telling myself that God never gives us more than we can handle.  And,… MORE

I don't know about the rest of you all, but it's been really difficult for me to reach for a pan lately.  No appetite, no special cravings, nada.  It's just too hot!  For some of you, it might not be.  For this born and raised southern California girl, I can't seem to tolerate any temperature… MORE

Maybe hoarding is a harsh word.  It occurred to me yesterday as I walked down the hall past the guest bedroom headed toward the kitchen.  I had to stop and turn around.  The cozy little room that has been a sanctuary to family members and dear friends is turning into a storage room! Piles and… MORE

Here I sit amongst numerous boxes from dear Mother's house.  They actually made it to Idaho from California before my plane even landed and was able to make the drive home.  Kudos to those brown trucks and cargo carriers!  As heartbreaking and emotional as it was, my sister and I forged our… MORE

Upon returning home from being gone for so long, I did my usual inventory check of supplies.  I opened up the fridge to see what we needed, and what we were good on.  Sitting on a shelf was a small bowl with a scant few eggs.  Not like the large ones the girls usually produce.  My initial… MORE

It has been over two weeks since I have stepped foot in a kitchen to cook.  I went to town to buy a few ingredients for a pie I've been wanting to bake.  Hubs had been doing a good job of keeping the basic supplies on hand.  Since we live in such a small town, many questioned why they hadn't… MORE

I can always tell when it's time for winter to come to an end.  The outdoor cats that hole up inside for fear of getting their little tootsies frozen start fighting.   The girls are pecking at each other in their hen house.  They won't come out because they don't want their tootsies frozen… MORE

I suppose some resolutions are better late than never.  And so it is with this entry.  Hopefully, I can keep things a little interesting.  This is not self-indulgence on my part.  Having been reading and watching what you all have been doing on this terrific site, I've decided to hop on the… MORE

About Me
I'm embracing country life, one dish at a time at Having grown up a city girl, I've had to learn to become resourceful, especially when it comes to cooking and baking. It's been challenging, but I wouldn't trade the beauty and peace for any other place.
My favorite things to cook
Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners with all the trimmings.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I come from a family that loves their meat, especially when it's hot off the outdoor grill. When the weather is nice, we move our cooking outside to enjoy gatherings with friends and firing up good eats on the bbq.
My cooking triumphs
Second helpings at the dinner table.
My cooking tragedies
None I care to recount. There have been many over the years.
