Hello Friends,
I never was one to have a diary or write deep thoughts, but I do like the idea of blogging about my passion and love for cooking, baking and food. I am a horticulturist/farmer/cook. Farming and cooking have always been a natural duo for me, I don't quite see how you can be a farmer and not enjoy cooking? So, on that note I will share my love of both on my blog here.

Love your dipped strawberries picture with a fathers day theme. Did you freeze the dark chocolate before adding the white chocolate? Enjoy reading your blogs. We live in Wylie just a few miles from Dallas.

Hi! I just read your cooking tragedies, and burst out laughing! What a sight that must have been! I, too, love canning and freezing garden produce, and cooking farm-style food. Congrats on your prize-winning entries!

I was a farmhand when I was in highschool. The farmers could't pay much but it was the cooking of their wives that was a large reward for the work.

About Me
Hi, I love to cook and started cooking when I was 12 years old. I learned by watching my Mother and self teaching. I collect cookbooks but my collection is pretty much decorative since discovering Allrecipes! My husband and I love to garden and have a 1 acre veggie garden through which we grow produce for community food programs/families in need. I love to can and preserve our harvest. My specialty is baking and impromptu meals.
My favorite things to cook
Cookies, comfort food, veggie dishes, pies, canning/preserving. I'll try any recipe once.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making a huge spread for Thanksgiving, Turkey of course with traditional trimmins. And an even bigger one for Christmas with traditional and "new" recipes. I try to make at least 3 new cookies for Christmas that I have never made before.
My cooking triumphs
My strawberry jam, apple butter and orange marmalade ALL took 1st place at this years county fair. Orange marmalade also took Best of Fair!
My cooking tragedies
Dropping an entire frosted cake! And..have a "beer can" chicken on the grill fly like a rocket across the backyard! The combination of alcohol, heat and opening a grill lid suddenly can cause danger, beware! My dog thought it was a very cool sight though.
