Healthy living is an important factor in my family's lifestyle.  It is a conscious way of living that is ever evolving.  I have to say that this was not always the case, unfortunately, but I continue to make great strides by taking lots of baby steps.My journey has had many twists and turns… MORE

I have been on a quest, for sometime now, learning to make my own bread and rolls.  My greatest challenge was coming up with a recipe that pleased my kids who had a definite idea of what they wanted in a sandwich bread.  We tried many recipes and found good points and points we would change… MORE

Yesterday was a good day.  It was my mothers 81st birthday.  I spent the entire day making her favorite dinner in hopes she would remember, something, anything , about me or my family.  Mom has Alzheimer's and it has advanced to the point of no recall.  It is pretty sad, and… MORE

I think I have just been paid.  Handsomely, and in full.  Ya know how you work hard, ya have a goal in mind and you kind of focus on that for a while and then all of a sudden - surprise!  someone notices?  Well, that is what happened to me.  And... it happened twice in… MORE

Ever feel like life is zooming by?  My kids are growing up at lightening speed, loved ones have passed all too quickly and we are on the threshold of our oldest going to college.  I took stock of all these things as our daughter celebrated her 10th birthday on the 13th.  Where… MORE

I am not much into the Super Bowl, football thing but I sure do like the food!  Any excuse is good to get together with friends, food and some adult beverages, right?  In spite of the record snowfall parties in our neck of the woods were in full swing!  Good thing as I made… MORE

So we had our record snowfall and it got me to thinking.  What would I worry most about getting if I could only get, say, 5 things at the store and the blizzard of the century was going to hit.  Hmmm, well if you asked me last week it would have been flour, Pamprin, chocolate, coffee and French MORE

Ok, it is going to snow - a LOT apparently.  We are in the NE and forecasted to get 12-20 inches.  Curses, I need to do my weekly shopping and I know what I am in for.  As usual everyone rushes to the store for supplies.  I am not one to panic at the mention of snow - I… MORE

We seem to have gone a little crazy with bread.   Perhaps a lot crazy.  Bread is such a wonderful treat as you can have it breakfast, lunch, dinner and a late night snack!  You can have it with dipping oils, jam, covered in sticky glazes or good ol' butter.  … MORE

About Me
I'm a mom of 5 great kids and married to my best friend for 28 years. All Recipes has been an amazing source of ideas and inspiration that has refueled my interest in cooking and sparked one in my children.
My favorite things to cook
Anything sweet or covered in tomato sauce! Right now I am in a bread and pastry craze.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We have a family cook off every few months. Everyone finds a recipe on AR or comes up with an idea and we shop, cook and enjoy together. We have had some pretty interesting meals!
My cooking triumphs
Teaching my kids to cook. All 5 kids know how to shop for groceries and put together a few meals. They can bake, too! Now, if they could do their laundry just as well......;-)
My cooking tragedies
Leaving a cake on the table to answer the doorbell and come back to find our 2 Great Danes chowing down on the "OMG-this-took-me-forever-to-make-and-decorate-for-Christmas-dinner" cake! Arghhhhhh!
