Colorado. Oregon. Wyoming. Now they might be among some of my first picks. But Missouri? And it really wouldn't be WWOOFing here at my house, it would be WWOOGing. Who in the world would want to WWOOG in a state that can equal the humidity of New Orleans and the weather can give you plenty to… MORE

It seems to me that every since the early days of joining AR and making some wonderful friends they have been urging me to share my gardens and gardening knowledge in a blog or blogs. Quite honestly, I thought their confidence in my abilities rather misplaced. Yes, 20 years ago I did see this… MORE

Back in January when I posted the first invite blog for June, I just knew I would have everything done. The gardens were going to be perfect, the house was going to be perfect and the food was going to be done on time & perfect. I got a good running start too. I started working on gifts in… MORE

I can't even pinpoint the exact date that these days started. At best guess it was the late '90's and it began with my sister. She had Mondays off and she was the good daughter. She would drive 45 minutes to my Mom's house and they would go shopping and out to lunch. My sister could get her… MORE

I've always thought of myself as a cat person. Don't get me wrong I'm a card carrying animal lover period. It has been said of me that I like my animals better than some people I've met. I can't refute that statement! But now I can say that I am officially a dog lover also. Again don't get me… MORE

You just know it will be one of "those" days when the complaints begin before you even get out of bed. Tuesday was no exception for me. Before I had pulled myself out from under the warm covers and into the dark chilly room, I heard it. The way the day was going to go. Houston was sitting… MORE

You are cordially invited to the middle of the Midwest 3rd annual AR roundup June 8th - 10th, 2012.  Wow!  It is almost hard to believe this will be #3 to be held at my house.  We may not have the shows or glamour of Vegas or the vistas of Colorado but when a group of AR cooks get together… MORE

About Me
I live in the middle of the U.S. in a farming communtiy. Gardening, reading and cooking are the things you'll mostly find me doing. I also enjoy horseback riding & my many pets. A husband & teen, I have 1 of each.
My favorite things to cook
Bread & BBQ are 2 of my favorite things to cook. I do enjoy a food challenge. Last year it was curing my own brisket for Corned beef & pastrami & porkloin for Canadian bacon. This year sausages & scratch cakes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Bread and brittle. I learned to bake bread with my Mom. It was her favorite thing to make. My Aunt made the best peanut brittle ever. She'd stopped making it in the later years but when I told her how much I enjoyed her brittle, she opened the vault ,gave me the recipe & handed over the brittle torch to me.
My cooking triumphs
Anything that turns out the way I wanted it to or exceeds my expectations! Like my homemade bratwurst.
My cooking tragedies
Let's not go there! I prefer not to think about my kitchen disasters besides my child can gleefully recount all of them.
