Married with three children. Living in beautiful Appleton WI.
My favorite things to cook
Chili, beef stew, meatballs, stroganoff, baked fish. Love to bake everything - especially carrot cake and cut out cookies. My new thing is trying new vegetarian dishes, and grass fed beef (yum!)
My favorite family cooking traditions
Stuffing or dressing as some call it.
My cooking triumphs
I have finally perfected my mother's pie crust - victory!
My cooking tragedies
Apple Pie - I completely messed up the crust recipe. It looked good, but when you touched the crust, it collapsed, way too much flour. I scraped off the crust and spooned out the apples. The filling was terrific though :)
