I've blogged a few times about my new toys recently - I got a Panini press, pizzelle maker, and a brand new stove. I even got a brand new car but didn't blog about that - I don't really consider that a toy.  Some might read my blogs and wonder - Does that woman's poor husband ever get… MORE

I had been anticipating this past weekend for a few weeks. Jon and I both had Friday off and we had plans to head to Michigan. Last Wednesday those plans were cancelled, or should I say post-poned, so we were left with the decision of whether or not to just go to work or find something else… MORE

I resolved to spend more time in my kitchen this year.  I have done that, somewhat.  But, for a few months now I've been pondering where I could go now in my kitchen.  I know my way around it pretty well and I wanted to go on a new journey. Have a new adventure.  I needed some spice in my… MORE

We just got back from our last summer trip to the Shenandoah National Park in Virginia.  We spent nine days camping and it was a blast.  Anything that could go right, went right.  Anything that could have gone wrong, stayed home.   My last blog was all about how Kristal and I "trained" for… MORE

Back in the day when my kids were very small, a man at work brought the cutest elf in to show everyone. His wife was very crafty and was making these elves for Christmas.  I had to have one - I knew my kids would love it!  So I placed my order and couldn't wait the 2 weeks he said it would… MORE

It's been awhile since I wrote.  I've been busy with "real" life - good and bad.  My brother who is only in his 40's suffered a heart attack.  Lucky for him (and us who love him) he is OK, and this may be a good wake up call for him to begin a new healthy lifestyle.   I got sick again, went… MORE

I do most of the cooking in our household, but my husband certainly knows how.  He enjoys it, too.  Sometimes we cook together.  When that happens there is always drinking involved!  Last night was one of those nights. We were having fish (cod), sweet potato casserole, steamed asparagus, and… 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!
