I never was much of a tequila fan.  I didn't even know it was a key ingredient to those yummy frozen concoctions I loved called margaritas.  Then - we became involved with a Mexican restaurant and suddenly I know it's what goes in a margarita.  And I know how to do a proper shot of tequila. … MORE

Steak San Morco - sounds really fancy to me.  It's not - but it is absolutely delicious!  And... best of all - I threw it in the crock pot this morning and headed out the door to work. I've been making this recipe for years. It started out as a go-to recipe for all the venison I had in my… MORE

My daughter and I both work about 5 minutes from my mom and dad's house.  That's a good thing because we can stop in to visit them after work.  My daughter, Kristi, only works until around noon on most Friday's and she's started a habit of going to Grandma and Grandpa's to have lunch with… 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!
