I'm a stay at home wife, and my husband is a chiropractor. I have three great stepchildren, ages 24, 22 and 20. In addition, we have 5 cats, 4 dogs and 5 horses we keep up with! In our spare time, we both love to entertain--anything from dinner parties for 4 to parties for 100. Most of the recipes I get from All Recipes are for the parties that we host. All Recipes has become my main source for new recipes, and I'm rarely disappointed.
My favorite things to cook
Desserts! I love baking cookies, cakes and pies. Apple dumplings are another favorite--my husband absolutely loves them--says they're the best!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving and my mother's apple, peach and pumpkin pies and apple dumplings.
My cooking triumphs
I can make a pie that is almost as good as my mother's--still have some learning to do, but I'm getting there. I'm also getting pretty good at her apple dumplings. I made my best and most beautiful turkey this Thanksgiving and an absolutely delicious prime rib (thanks to All Recipes).
My cooking tragedies
My husband and I like rare steaks, but I ALWAYS overcook them when I do them. That's why he always cooks them now!
