I have been married for 27 years to the best husband. I have 2 wonderful children, my daughter was just married in Jan. 2008 and my son is a Sophomore at Indiana University. My dog, Misty (my profile picture) is 12 years old, but acts like a young dog. She loves my banana bread. I work in the Athletic Dept. of our local school system. I love to cook and bake, love to try new recipes.
My favorite things to cook
Baking fresh bread, baking muffins and cookies. Like to try new recipes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My Grandma made the best applesauce cake with caramel icing. My other Grandma made wonderful cookies and the best potato candy.
My cooking triumphs
When I finally found a recipe that was close to my Grandma's caramel icing for applesauce cake. She was one of those cooks who didn't go by recipe to cook.
My cooking tragedies
Anything that sets off the smoke alarm in our house or camper...
