I'm an Indiana girl. Even if I move from here one day, I'll always be an Indiana girl. A couple of counties north of where I live there is a man-made lake. On one section of it's shores there is an amusement park called Indiana Beach. We are "beach challenged" in the Midwest. The… MORE

I apologize for not keeping in touch better/more often. I find blogging here difficult. It never seems to work the same way twice. . .(either that or I don't work the same way twice. Which is entirely possible.) I've been making crochet and learning. That's what I call "watching… MORE

Oprah started all that "gratitude" stuff back in the ninety's. I took it to heart. It has been a blessing in my life. Especially when I was feeling "down". I've had a lot of feeling down, as probably have most of you. It's my belief that everyone is carrying a burden of some sort. Some you… MORE

I don't know what my main malfunction was when we walked through Cat's gardens because I could SWEAR that I took pictures. I distinctly remember taking pictures around the water feature of the water lily and the frogs, etc and I can't find ANY of them on my camera *pout*. That has… MORE

I "found" AllRecipes in November of 2009. I'm not exactly sure WHY I didn't find it sooner. I have some guesses. Kids, job(s), marriage, divorce, house fire, knee surgery, LIFE. At the time I'd been unemployed for 15 monthes. Job hunting in the new century/millenium means you MUST have access… MORE

I've been seeing all these blogs about butter. I am sorry. I can't resist. But, the butter enters my story much later. I also suppose it may not really contribute much to the story (but it DID make the meal) and it's a true story. Sometimes I like to think about things "cosmically" and this… MORE

About Me
Living with two grown children (19 and 24)and two dogs. Presently working on a web page for e-commerce.
My favorite things to cook
Anything, really. What do you like to eat? :)
My favorite family cooking traditions
I'm not sure we have traditions, just great gatherings food and love.
My cooking triumphs
I taught myself to make Danish Pastry about 20 yrs. ago. It wasn't as hard as I thought it would be and ohhh so yummy !!
My cooking tragedies
The very first time I tried to make bread. . . I baked clever little bricks. They LOOKED like bread. . . very deceiving. . .played with them in the back yard (I was 15. . . the dogs "fetched" them, but even they couldn't eat them.)
