I have been married for 25 years, and we have one son who is in high school. I am an avid bird watcher thanks to the huge influence of my parents, and I love to camp, travel, and enjoy nature! Love living in Omaha. I have lived here my entire life.

Oyster stew on Christmas Eve.
My cooking triumphs
Indonesian Braised Pork. It's the family's favorite! Got the recipe from the local newspaper back in 1980!

Grandma's Coconut Corn Flake Cookies
I made creme brule earlier in the week, so I had egg whites to use up. This recipe caught my eye, because of the corn flakes and coconut addition to a standard meringue cookie...That said, by dropping by rounded tablespoons, I only ended up with 30/cookies versus the 60 the recipe suggests. I cooked them for 2/hours at 212 degrees on non-stick foil. They were crunchy and delicious!

Exquisite Pizza Sauce
Made this sauce 7/22/12. Our son said it was the best pizza sauce he had ever had! He said this was the only pizza sauce he ever wanted to have on pizza. We used it on grilled pizza!

Thai Steamed Mussels
YUMMO....I modified somewhat, 2 T Madras curry powder for red curry paste, and 2 T minced garlic because we love garlic. This is a keeper...Fastastic...Served with slices of toasted french baguette to soak up all the juices, and also bought 4/lbs of mussels vs. 5
