I grew up in WA and after being married to the USAF for 20 years my hubby & I now reside in AZ. I enjoy 5 grandangels (4g,1b) who live around the country. I love reading new recipes and trying a little spice to liven things up. We grill and eat a lot of fresh vegetables, trying to watch the calories, but there is nothing better than chocolate! I also love to take pictures of nature and all my grandangels.
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy making my own cassaroles, stews, or lasagna from scratch and baking almost anything. I tend to change recipes now that I have learned more of what goes together through trial and error. Rarely does anything I make go uneaten.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas cookies and candies. We make all of our holiday goodies from scratch. Several cookies, old fashion fudge, peanut clusters, and fruit breads, to name a few.
