I love Sunday!  I get to have coffee with my hubby and read the paper.  And today I made 3 batches of peach salsa, and canned some tomato juice.  Then I relaxed for awhile with some football.  But I had the munchies so I made a dark chocolate cake, and popcorn cake, except I… MORE

Did you know you don't have to make regular lasagna?  I made a bbq lasagna last night that is fabulous!  I used  bbq sauce and shredded cheddar jack cheese along with the cottage cheese!  Wow, it was great.  On another line, my husband brought home some of the most… MORE

I made chinese for supper last night.  I thought I would try a new recipe - sometimes this works and sometimes it doesn't!  I love the potstickers I get at the this chinese restaurant so I thought when I found this recipe why not?  It required boiling the potstickers until… MORE

I can't believe it is fall already!  It has been crazy since the fair, from school activities, work, meetings, etc. We ended up doing really well at the fair!  My cappuccino pecan pie took first place along with my pecan caramel cinnamon rolls and my regular cinnamon rolls.  Abby… MORE

About Me
I learned to cook watching my mom and my Grandma's cook - who all are the best in the world! I have huge garden and I can a lot of stuff for winter. My daughter would'nt dream of eating a pie that was store bought! And we raise chickens. There is nothing that compares to farm fresh eggs. They just make your baked goods taste better.
My favorite things to cook
Comfort food! If it's fattening, chocolate or salty I'm in! I love to take leftovers and transform them into something wow!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom always made sugar cookies with us kids at Christmas time and do the same thing now! I used to love to pick out a recipe and Mom would let me got to town in the kitchen! At Christmas I also make tons of candy's, breads, and cookies that I give away to neighbors and family for gifts.
My cooking triumphs
I love to enter canned goods and baked goods in the county fair! I have won quite a few ribbons! I recently had a recipe published in Nebraska Life Magazine's cookbook. I was so excited.
My cooking tragedies
One time I tried to make pierogies when I was about 15. Well I didn't realize how much a cast iron skillet would smoke when it got hot! I ended up filling the house with a lovely smokey aroma! I never have made them again! Another time I tried to make chicken satay, and my husband and daughter about gagged when they tried the sauce. As they said peanut butter doesn't go with chicken! But I loved it. They were scraping the sauce off the chicken. They won't let me live that one down!
