I am a retired school teacher and we moved to the country. We live near Knob Noster, MO...which may not ring any bells, but it is close to Whiteman AFB home of the B-2 bomber. Our home is in the flight line and it is impressive to watch those big birds go over to land.
I really love animals, expecially horses. I have five cats and four dogs. I used to have eight horses, but they have all passed away over the years. I miss them so much!
I have 5 beautiful grandchildren Tavia 9, Avorey almost 4 and Olivia almost 2 and the twins, Brynn and Brody almost 5 months. I love them all so much. I am especially excided to have a grandson. My first boy! Not that I love him more than the girls, but he is a one of a kind.
Love to cook and walk and exchange recipes. I can cook and watch deer, wild turkey, and sometimes a lone bobcat out my kitchen window.
I love to travel and my fantasy destination would be a trip to Ireland the home of a cook I just met (on line here, of course) Trishie...
My favorite things to cook
I love Italian foods, expecially Lasagna, but like to try new foods everyday. I love to eat but the food has to be really great food. I don't like ordinary food or fast food...no no has to be the "good stuff"!!I am starting to develop a taste for Indian food. Loved the recipe on here for Curried Coconut Chicken! My son-in-law makes this dish I love called cabbage rolls. It is kind of like a little meat loaf inside of a cabbage leaf! He is also a great dessert cook! That is Jeremy!!!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family (mother's side) used to eat together every Sunday and I looked forward to dinner each week. We always had a big rump roast, mashed potatoes with gravy, slaw, different veggies, homemade mac-n-cheese and my aunt Dixie made several delicious pies every week. Now, my family, gets together only on Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas for big dinners. It is a lot of work but I love the get togethers.
My cooking triumphs
I'm an excellent pie maker. I learned when I was very little from my aunt Dixie. I have to say haven't tried any better than my own. I love to makes desserts best and now I'm into different kinds of cheesecakes.
My cooking tragedies
Every once in a while I make a mess of something, but usually don't have any tragedies! I made some homemade cinnamon rolls yesterday that turned out tough and not too tasty! But that doesn't happen very often.
