I am in the market for a new breadmaker.  I am looking for suggestions for features, brands, etc.  My old one was at least 10 yrs. old and pretty basic.  It did not have a rapid cycle, took a min. of 4.5 hours to bake a loaf so I would like a rapid bake feature. It was working perfectly… MORE

I have in my hand a yellowed, food-stained,  worse for the wear,  recipe card for Ruby Cranberry Sauce.  I love this sauce.  I was so proud the first time I made it for my family on Thanksgiving replacing the canned jelly stuff.  It came out delicious and so georgous to look at.  THEY HATED… MORE

Hi everybody!  I took the leap today and upgraded my membership to supporting status so I could write a blog.  Two Rock Soup inspired me with his blog today.  I am semi-retired and on my retirement bucket list was to join a book club.  I did that and attended one at my local library.  The… MORE

About Me
I am a retired registered nurse. I have two fabulous grandchildren ages 10 and 7, they live only 1 mile from me so we cook together often.
My favorite things to cook
I like one pot meals, slow cooker, rustic fare. Lately, I am cultivating recipes for soup and have turned out some really good results, especially using curry seasoning. I am not a baker.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I make many of my mother's dishes. I like to entertain with just a wide array of appetizers sometimes, even though it is labor intensive.
My cooking triumphs
My Italian spaghetti sauce. My famous pot roast made in an oven bag. Appetizers.
My cooking tragedies
My latest debacle is making Pho, Vietnamese beef soup. Very labor intensive, many exotic ingredients, cook all day. I went to strain it through a cheesecloth lined colander and forgot to put anything under the colander. Down the drain it went; 7 hours worth of broth. Oh Well!
