Okay, I’ll go first! I almost came clean last Thanksgiving but I didn’t have the “pumpkins”. Will you help me decide if this dubious record should be broken? And… what have you been hiding all these years you would like to confess??My confession... I love to cook, entertain, and I love… MORE

About Me
We spend part of the year in Naples, FL enjoying the sun, so I feel blessed to be able to do two of my favorite loves all year; golfing & grilling. I love entertaining and planning get-togethers for friends. It's fun to come up with a theme for the evening and develop a menu around it.
My favorite things to cook
Since grilling is my favorite way to cook, I enjoy finding different marinades & sauces and interesting side dishes to keep things interesting. In the fall I enjoy spending a Sunday in the kitchen making a pot of something hearty and comforting. I don't bake much but enjoy a flour-fest in the kitchen once in a while!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Traditions have changed over the years with the "kids" and with all the juggling of family visits and big meals, I would have to say brunch is now my favorite meal to make. It makes for a relaxed morning/afternoon and no one has to rush to split their time with other family members! A full tummy and a Bloody Mary makes for a nice nap before more festivities begin!
My cooking triumphs
Any meal the family says out loud they like is a triumph in my book! Recently, I have enjoyed mastering different kinds of cheesecakes. It's an elegant and rich dessert that can be made into any imaginable flavor!!!
My cooking tragedies
I'm famous for leaving something in the oven or grill. Mashed Potatoes or grilled corn for dessert anyone?!? ;)
