Today was a "sick day" for me.  Ok, it's just a cold. But I took the day off anyway, and made use out of being able to sip hot tea with honey in my jammies!  I decided to go through the nightmare of a drawer I use to stash all my recipes. Fortunately, most of them were recipes I printed from… MORE

Im not a world class cook or baker by any means, but there are times when you feel so motivated to do something right... something really fantastic... that you will go through several failures in the process. I grew up in a very small town in Iowa. It was so small in fact, that every day the… MORE

Last night I made a fresh pumpkin pie from an actual pie pumpkin. My son loves pumpkin pie, and I have had a little extra time on my hands lately, so why not? I bought 2 pumpkins, because I really had no idea how much "stuff" would come out of one. Its a good thing too, because Im not an… MORE

About Me
I cook when Im bored, but whe never I cook or bake I really want to impress myself and others. I love trying new things and working with different ingredients.
My favorite things to cook
Italian foods are my favorite! I especially love Chicken Parmesan. Yes, I know it's not a difficult meal, but mmmmm!
My cooking triumphs
Pumpkin pie made with a real pumpkin! Actually the triumph was not chopping off a finger when I cut open that tiny and very hard little pumpkin!
My cooking tragedies
ALWAYS read the entire recipe prior to beginning! I once made a meatloaf that had a sauce over the top. But when I began mixing the ingredients into the meat, I mixed in the ingredients to the sauce. YUCK. Even my husband had a hard time choking down a bite.
