Married for 16 years, 1 son and two dogs. Full time work both at home and on the job plus grad school! Love crafts and reading when I get the time and am not too tired. Enjoy Steelers football and Penguin Hockey.
My favorite things to cook
Anything! Followed closely by trying new recipes or inventing my own. I've just recently been bitten by the cooking bug. I have a hard time not logging on to find a new way to fix something for every meal I get time to cook! I've added several new receipes I hope are accepted for others to share
My favorite family cooking traditions
Homemade apple butter, grilling, my mom's Thanksgiving stuffing, Saturday morning pancakes and bacon or sausage, Friday night homemade pizza.
My cooking triumphs
The first roast I ever cooked in our first apartment. The stove was so small that the oven door would not completely close because the pan was too big! But I got it cooked!
My cooking tragedies
An italian soup that ended up being just a big tasteless pot of noodles! That was when I learned to follow the recipe to the T the first time you make it. Now that I am more proficient I can experiment the first time, but wow was it a mistake that time!
