I've felt quite inspired by the trip I recently took to Lancaster, PA.  The food we enjoyed at Sukhothai and at John J. Jeffries was exquisite and wonderful.  I felt great on everything we ate.  What was different?  The food we ate was heavy on the veggies and light on meat and fat.  It was… MORE

Ok, this is a foodie site so here I will air my foodie woes.  Today for lunch I had a chicken pie from Schwan's.  It was tasty and homestyle and just fit the bill for a quick lunch.  The only grief I have with my lunch is what the package said on the outside, "Chicken Pot… MORE

Today will be interesting!  My family would go on a revolt if I tried to sell them on vegetarian grilling.  As luck would have it our friends' vegetarian daughter has agreed to join us for dinner tonight!  Yippee!  I pulled two recipes; one for vegetarian burgers (I bought Boca) and the other… MORE

About Me
I am a PA Dutch-raised SAHM who now lives in the suburbs of D.C. I have two awesome kids who are now both in Elementary school and I am learning to balance home, school and community ... haven't passed that test yet. My favorite room in the house is the kitchen and I love to cook for friends. I am a displaced Recipezaarian and am making AllRecipes.com my new home and homepage.
My favorite things to cook
I love baking cakes in varying flavors. Unfortunately, being diabetic, I'm limited to baking cakes when I know there will be plenty of people to consume them! I have learned to love trying to copycat recipes from fine-dining experiences we have. I rely mostly on recipes but often step out of the box with substitutions to increase the "healthy" factor in the foods that I serve.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My favorite cooking memories are making Christmas cookies at Grandma O's house(especially her Sand Tarts!) and having wonderful home-cooked dinners at Grandma E's House on Sundays with the best homemade bread, dried corn and real mashed potatoes. Two of my favorite Christmas offerings as I grew up were my mom's homemade chocolate-covered buttercreams and my Aunt Janice's "candy-cane bread".
My cooking triumphs
The most memorable dish I have made was a Peanut Butter Pie from The Common Grill Cookbook by Chef Greg Common in Ann Arbor, MI. It "WOWed" Mom's group and was a best-seller at the concession stand for the church plays. All of the dishes I made from Chef Common's cookbook have been hits but prep is sometimes a bit extensive so I save them for special occasions.
