About Me
I retired as a court reporter from a common pleas court. I have 4 grown children and 4 grandchildren. I love being retired! I enjoy being a homemaker now, cooking good meals and baking bread! And of course I love being able to be with my grandchildren much more than when I was working. Ohio is a beautiful state with 4 seasons, and I enjoy each one.
My favorite things to cook
Bread, Italian dishes, fruit and savory pies.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I had to teach myself to cook, my mother never wanted any of us kids in the kitchen, and I really can't think of any cooking traditions.
My cooking triumphs
Bread, salisbury steak, lasagna, stuffed peppers and spaghetti & meatballs are my favorite dishes to make.
My cooking tragedies
I struggle with every meatloaf I make. Rarely do I make a good meatloaf. Don't know why.
