As my supporting membership is winding down, and things are about to become very busy, I thought I would write one last blog to share with you in case I am unable to get to it before it is too late. I have loved coming to AR since I stumbled upon it, oh, seven years ago or so.  I was a very… MORE

Hello to all!  Perhaps I should not talk about things that don't relate so much with food on here...but this kinda does have to do with food a little bit.  Plus, I feel more free here than I do elsewhere.  See, I read a lot about people having bad days, not just on this site, but everywhere. … MORE

I met my boyfriend seventeen years ago.  I was lying on the beach with my best friend outside of her family's cabin.  She was checking out the life guard, all tan and muscular.  Not my type...I have always loved dorks.  So here comes this dorky dude on his skateboard, all skin and bones, big… MORE

About Me
I live with my boyfriend and my daughter in our cozy little house that we all love(except my daughter, who is 13 and likes nothing). We have three dogs, a cat and two turtles. Up until recently we also had a pet mouse (the daughter's), and I have since learned the perils of joking around about a pet's demise.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook things that produce the biggest smiles. So, for the BF, that would be corned beef and cabbage. For DD it would be pierogies. For a dear family friend, it would be my marinara, for I have never received such raves...ever!
My favorite family cooking traditions
There are many. Two favorites I have loved since my earliest memories: on Thanksgiving, orange jello salad; on Christmas, red jello salad. They bring such memories! Sometimes simplicity is the key to happiness.
My cooking triumphs
I am a huge (HUGE) football fan. Let's just say I have the NFL Network and I use it often! Anyways, I went to a Steelers game a couple years back (tailgaiting begins no later than 9:00 a.m.). Oh what a day! But I STILL made dinner that night. Nobody can remember what the heck it was, but we all loved it! (I am still searching my cookbooks for it).
My cooking tragedies
See the above triumph. Same type of day (football), except I got "confused" and instead of checking my watch for the date and smelling the milk, I smelled my watch and looked at the milk!!! Bad milk, bad next day. Lol! I don't go to football games anymore...
