I’ve been daydreaming and planning on sharing this story for a while now.  If it’s too gloomy I apologize; however, I think it will be a sweet way to share and celebrate a special time with my mother.   My mother & I were very close friends.  I miss her.  She found peace earlier… MORE

About Me
There's not much to say. I'm happily married, and I have two grown sons, one still living with me - my husband says becauce of my home-cooking :) I work too much, usually 2 jobs Monday through Friday so most nights have to be quick meals - but I do the best I can in spite of that.
My favorite things to cook
In general I like simply making delicious & healthy meals. I love slow cooking but I seldom have the time in the mornings to get anything set up.
My favorite family cooking traditions
To not be too fussy in measuring (except for the first time trying a new recipe!) My mom seldom measured, and aside from baking I don't think most things have to be exact - even my best assistant (my husband) is getting good at not having to measure everything lol
My cooking triumphs
My youngest son loves fresh homemade cookies - everyone loves my brownies - and there's so many meals that everyone loves, probably my lasagne is everyone's favorite
My cooking tragedies
ha ha when I catch the stove on fire (happened a couple of times on me already - oops!!)
