Married in 1987, with a son and daughter in high school. I normally work full-time in HR, but am currently out of work since my job was eliminated after a merger.
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy baking most of all...especially Christmas cookies and dessert bars. I'm always looking for main dish recipes that my entire family will enjoy. Not an easy feat.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Devoting a day or two to Christmas baking. I love giving homemade cookies to neighbors, co-workers, etc. for Christmas.
My cooking triumphs
I make the best mashed potatoes in the world. My chili is always good, but I don't use a recipe. My fruit streusel bars have been described as "friggin' amazing."
My cooking tragedies
I might as well completely give up on pork chops!
