Thanks so much for the positive feedback.  Darryl and I began camping about 4 years ago with a little tent, then graduated to a larger tent with a queensize air bed, screen room, and camp kitchen complete with sink.  Man, am I spoiled or what!?  Now that we have the camper I really enjoy the… MORE

Well, since I last posted, we have gotten rid of the motorcycles and have purchased a camping trailer and truck.  We have always liked to camp but tent camping was just getting to be too much.  So now we have a "hybrid" trailer.  23 feet of living space and the beds plop right down on the… MORE

About Me
I am 53 the mother of 1 daughter (grown and moved out on her own) and engaged to Darryl. We are avid motorcycle riders and each own Harleys! We have two dogs - Peanut 12 years old a yorkiepoo and our new "baby" is Mac - He is 2 months old and adorable. He is a yorkie. Both have carriers for the bike and goggles, so they ride whenever we do. Take me, take my dogs or I don't go! UPDATE: We got rid of the motorcycles and invested in a new pickup truck and camping trailer! WOW! Now I am trying to come up with meals to fix while we are camping. So much fun!
My favorite things to cook
Anything - I love the challenge of trying to create a new dish or just the comfort of the "old" dishes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Holiday Meals - same thing every year. But it really is worth looking forward to. Thanks to my Mom and Dad.
My cooking triumphs
So far I haven't lost anyone to my meals. I guess my biggest joy was the year I made Thanksgiving Dinner for my family and extended family for the first time. My Grandmother, was a home economics teacher and Granddaddy was just a wonderful person. Everyone enjoyed the meal and the best part....It was all done and hot/cold at the same time. Yeah!
My cooking tragedies
Lots, too many to mention here but lets just go with "no one died" or refused to try something else I made.
