I live in rural southern Ohio where there is a lot of different types of local and international flavor. Cooking is something I find pleasurable and making people go YUM brings me joy. I work a lot and like to find good, quick and easy recipes which is why this site is great!!
My favorite things to cook
Meats, soups, sauces, breads and snacks.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love the cooking traditions surrounding Passover and Thanksgiving.
My cooking triumphs
Any time I can make something out of nothing in a short period of time that tastes like something from a gourmet restaurant.
My cooking tragedies
Worked all day on a peach souffle cutting fresh peaches that my husband brought back special from Georgia, mixing everything perfectly, whipping the egg whites, and so forth. Put it in the oven and the element hit the top of the souffle and it exploded!! WHAT A DISAPPOINTING MESS!!
