Recipe collector, beader, and beach lover.
My favorite things to cook
I love to create quick and easy dinners, my daughter calls my creations, "Mommy McQuiver's."
My favorite family cooking traditions
I go "all out" for my open house Thanksgiving dinner. Friends, family, and neighbors who are without family nearby can always count on a seat at our Thanksgving table.
My cooking triumphs
Great family recipe cheesecake
My cooking tragedies
My first attempt at roasting chestnuts resulted in flying projectiles when I opened the oven door to see what the popping sound was all about. I only got to eat one chestnut and it took hours to clean up the oven. Lesson: slit the chestnuts before roasting!
