This is so exciting and also a tad scarry for me.  I'm not computer savy, nor a culinary genious, but I am a housewife, mother of grown kids and a grandmother. Through these economic times, I have had to stretch my food budget.  This is a hard thing to face when food is a main part of your personality.  I love to cook. I love to eat . I get pleasure providing good food to the ones I love. We all have fallen on hard times... we all have to readjust within our means.... this is what I do.  My mother-in-law is ever amazed at the dishes I serve to her son .... To quote This Amazing Mentor of mine, an amazing cook in her own right, "Terry could rub two rocks together and make a great meal " Welcome to Two Rock Soup!

AAAWWW what a wonderful MIL you have:):) Makes me green with envy. My MIL is a pain and a PICKY eater to boot. I am her caretaker/cook and doesn't like most anything. Glad you are here with us. Look forward to reading about Rock Soup. Funny but my kids, (probably like every other kid),made stone soup too, It was Delish! LOL

About Me
I was a working mother of 2 boys! I didn't have much time for cooking... now that the boys are grown and on their own... I have been enjoying learning and appreciating the art of cooking. I started with a day of baking with my mother in law and I was hooked! Not to mention my new stepkids... what was two... now is four! Our family is growing we now have a grandson, Damien, and one on the way! My grandson loves his visits with Gramma and Grampa...We spend quality time in the kitchen snd chronical our visits here on AR!
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake! It is my therapy...I love to buy and read all types of recipe books ( call me old fashion ) but it's fun to pick out 1 recipe in a new book and try it the day I get the book!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My husband and I have great times cooking meals together! When the kids come to visit we let them request their menu of choice. Funny twist... my two boys request Jim's culinary feasts... Jim's two request Stepmom's dinner delights! Works out fine at the end of the day!
My cooking triumphs
Check out my pics, the wedding cake? It was my 1st attempt at a wedding cake... can you believe it... I still can't!
My cooking tragedies
so many... hard to pick just one! but isn't that the joy of cooking?
