I’m so freaking antsy.  The sun is shining, we’ve got blue skies, it’s in the upper 30’s (a virtual heat wave after our winter).  Surely the end must be near even if Mother Nature throws us a March snow storm or two. (I draw the line at 3 or any in April).  So my thoughts are… MORE

Sunshine.  I’m not talking about a clear, blue sky day.  Sunshine  invokes memories of a grocery store chain that went out of business about 15 years ago.  This store was just fun.  I loved going there as a kid because they had a horse I could ride for only a penny.… MORE

I've always loved to fish.  Guess its part of the water baby in me.  I could live on, in, by, the water and never leave.  So it was a good thing when I married Mr. Outdoorsman.  And 25 years later, while we don't have a competitive relationship in most any respect, I still… MORE

I guess now that I'm a smurf I should probably take advantage of this blog.  Introductions seem appropriate for a first blog.  Hello.  My name is Jena. And I am a Wannabe.  Sigh.....I wannabe a great cook but first I wanna have patience.  I don't.  So.  I am… MORE

About Me
I'm an ocean lover living in Iowa. Married to my lovey for 28 years, a mother of four (ages 27-19) and grandma to one gorgeous boy (4). Working as a paralegal in a busy law firm so Allrecipes is a great place to take a break.
My favorite things to cook
I love food! I think I'm best at baking but enjoy the challenge of putting a meal together every night, or at least trying to. My hubby is a meat and potatoes kind of guy but I love fish, chicken and pasta. Recently have begun baking bread.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas dinners at my parents and trying to take on some of those cooking duties and learn their recipes, especially my Dad's stuffing. I love making enormous platters of cookies and candies at Christmas time.
My cooking triumphs
The first time I made a fudge that actually turned out perfect. Go figure! I put it on a Christmas tray and took to Christams Eve at my parents and my Dad kept saying that it had to be store bought! To this day when I show up with fudge everyone says "so you've been shopping again!" Also from scratch lasagna and spaghetti and other pasta sauces.
My cooking tragedies
Ha! If I can get through one week without a tragedy I'm calling it good. I'm a twister in the kitchen and by twister I mean toranado and by tornado I mean an F5 blow the doors off this place and by that I mean I make a mess.
