Yesterday I was determined to make a second slow cooker recipe for our All Stars challenge.  Since it is just DH and I at home and we really don't eat dinner anymore, I'm doubly challenged to make something in the slow cooker that will not be heavily calorie laden or feed an army.  After… MORE

My mother decided to go back to work when I was young - I'm assuming it was out of financial necessity.  I am the youngest of six children but because of the age difference, I was really an only child.  My mother was never really a good cook but she did her best and would dash home after… MORE

I've entered a new phase of my life and I'm trying to determine where to go with it.  My children are, as I tell everyone, educated, employed and out of the house.  My eldest has just recently gotten engaged and is most likely getting married this summer and my youngest has recently moved… MORE

About Me
I'm so glad to have the time to cook and bake again although I've got fewer to cook for now! Luckily DH's work cohorts love my food!
My favorite things to cook
I have rediscovered my love for cooking and baking now that I have time to do it again. I especially love making breads and rolls but have also tried to expand my horizons with savory items. I am a notorious carb-aholic.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We always had the tradition of pork and sauerkraut on New Years Day for luck. I always make Monkey Bread on Christmas morning (the kind with butterscotch pudding and frozen rolls). I try to make a nice somewhat fancy dinner for whatever family is available on Christmas Eve before church services.
My cooking triumphs
My one and only attempt at Thanksgiving dinner for the entire family went well.
My cooking tragedies
I really have no "tragedies" but I cannot get the hang of homemade biscuits.
