Hi! I'm Carolyn. Married to David since 1986. We have 3 sons. I feel like I used to be a pretty decent cook. Since 3 sons have now become men, and we moved into a fixer upper with a less than scrumptious kitchen... the meals actually have come to downright annoy me. I don't so much enjoy being in the kitchen. One day I will have a new kitchen. I look forward to that. Alas, I keep my chin up and keep attempting to move forward, setting tasty nutritious food on the coffee table before me and he! and sometimes... I made it! :-)
My favorite things to cook
I used to make amazing cheesecake! um and casseroles that were all yumminess mixed up. Cookies. Now... I seem to mess just about everything up. Overcooked or undercooked. I blame DVR! LOL That and that blasted kitchen that has just sucked the creative being I once was right outta me. Today I baked a bundt cake outta the box. I popped onto allrecipes and wallah! Its gorgeous with the chocolate glaze recipe I found! HEY! I pulled one off! HIP HIP Hooray!
My favorite family cooking traditions

My cooking tragedies
*Last month's undercooked meatloaf! UGHHHH
*My first attempt at homemade chicken soup. I left the chicken on the burner cooking on low. Yes a full stockpot of water... Left the apt to gather celery and carrots.. maybe onion too, from the grocery store less than a block away. U[pon my return as I approached the 3rd home from my apt, I began to smell smoke. You guessed it! My entire little apt had filled with smoke from the boiled dry stock pot. I can't believe the home owner under us didn't address this with me. YIKES! Anyways... my husband is forever yelling at me to "turn that burner down!"
