Friday was that "special" day in Northeast Ohio where kids have the day off from school, and school employees do, too - NEOEA Day.  It's a day for educators to attend special workshops or to just do something where they may possibly pick up some new, useful, knowledge for their classroom. … MORE

In a little more than two weeks my husband, Jon, and I will be celebrating our 30th anniversary.  Sometimes I still feel like that 20-year-old girl who knew how to bake chocolate chip cookies and make meatloaf and not much else.  I barely knew my way to our tiny apartment kitchen, let alone… MORE

My family is big on tradition.  We tend to celebrate our holidays in the same fashion year after year.  I know that for me, if we didn't do that, it just wouldn't be Christmas!  I've also come to realize that most of our traditions revolve around food.   The biggest tradition we have is all… MORE

About Me
I've been married for 32 years, and live in Ohio. We have a daughter who is married and lives nearby. Our son graduated from college and moved to South Dakota. He has his own place but still goes to visit my sister and brother-in-law and have dinner with them occasionally. We have a black lab that gets to go duck hunting with dad, 2 cats, 2 cockatiels. We own a Mexican restaurant and are learning alot about the food industry. I love to eat, go camping, read, spend time with family and friends, watch movies, and drink wine; not necessarily in that order.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake - anything chocolate is fine with me. Seafood, chicken dishes and slow-cooker fare.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My husband and I enjoy cooking together with wine. We pop open a bottle of wine and get cooking. :-)
My cooking triumphs
Whenever I can put together a meal that gets many compliments and leaves the diners satisfied is a triumph in my book! I love to cook meals for family and friends.
My cooking tragedies
When I was first married we had my grandparent's-in-law over for a pot roast dinner. The meat came out great, but the potatoes and carrots were still half raw. My husband's grandfather went to cut his fork into a carrot and it flew off his plate. He looked at me, winked, and said he loved his carrots that way!
