I live in south central Pennsylvania with my husband. I love the paranormal & mysteries and belong to 2 groups pertaining to those subjects. I enjoy reading, writing, spending time with friends & family, being in nature (but I'm NOT a camper). I usually spend vacation at historical and/or haunted locations. I love history and am currently researching some fascinating historical characters in my area. I am usually the person in charge of organizing events, gatherings, investigations, outings & vacations.
My favorite things to cook
Comfort food--mac n cheese, soups/stews, cookies, LOVE Pennsylvania Dutch recipes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
The Saturday before Christmas my mom, sisters & sisters-in-law get together and make hundreds of cookies. We call it "Cookie Day."
My cooking triumphs
I don't have any in particular, but I'm always happy when people ask me for a recipe of something I've made.
My cooking tragedies
My best friend was bringing home her adopted daughter from China. Her family and I were waiting for her when they arrived. I had made lasagna for the ocassion. Bad part is--instead of grabbing oregano, I had began sprinking CINNAMON on the lasagna. I had scooped most of it off and figured the tomato taste would be strong enough to mask it. It wasn't. :-( Embarrassing.
