Married in 06, 2nd one for both of us. Had raised a son & daughter as single mom, then married and gained 3 steps; a son & 2 daughters. All are grown and we've been blessed w/7 beautiful grandaughters and 2 adorable grandsons. DH lost his job in Sep08, but has kept us going by becoming a General Contractor - he's very much like dear old dad in that area. I do Cust Svc - 15 yrs with most recent employer. It's ok - I'm not 50 yet, but am looking forward to the days of winding down. Wish I could afford to retire early; not likely to happen in this economy.
My favorite things to cook
PORK!!! Any cut! It's my favorite and so flavorful.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Mom's tuna casserole; can't beat it!
My cooking triumphs
Berry & Peach cobbler! Kept a 15 yr old recipe clipped from Family Circle magazine and finally tried it in 2008... huge hit!
And most recently, Triple-berry Pudding Cake! Another recipe from Family Circle. Incredible!
My cooking tragedies
Anything made with dough! It just doesn't happen for me. I leave that type of cooking up to my dh!
