So, for the last few days Connecticut weather has been gorgeous!  Today it got up to a beautiful 60 degrees.  This gets my family just itching for summer time!  My husband got off work around 1 today, so we decided to take our little man to the park.  He got to go down the… MORE

So, this is my very first blog.  This morning my sister gave me a supporting membership.  This was her sweet, yet cunning way of forcing me into sharing something wonderful with her.  Most of you will know this amazing woman as Citrus Punch.  She informed that she could not… MORE

About Me
I am proud mother of 1 amazing boy, and wife to a sailor, whom I am extremely grateful for. My family is the most important thing in my simple little world. And my favorite way to show them is with food! :-)
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake! Anything and everything! If you challenge me, I can't stop trying until mine is the best you have EVER had! LOL!
My favorite family cooking traditions
On Thanksgiving we have such a wide array of food. Each one of my (5) sisters (and myself) prepares different sides and desserts. We end up with the most amazing selection of classic and new dishes. Every year is treat for the taste buds! My poor mother though, gets to cater to all of these girls with the potatoes. Some of us like them creamy, some lumpy, and I like mine sweet with hamburger gravy!
My cooking triumphs
My sister challenged me to make the best Coconut Cream Pie she had ever had. She is extremely picky, and brutally honest. Much to my pleasure, it was a SUCCESS!!!
My cooking tragedies
Haha! My very first crock pot meal. You would think that would have been easy enough...but no. It was a chicken and veggie casserole type dish. The chicken was dry, the veggies were soggy, and the rest was like water! Oh how far I've come with the crock pot! :-)
