We normally have a specific reason to be going camping. Whether it is hiking in the mountains and going to wineries, a hunting or fishing trip, it could be anything - but we always have a REASON to be going camping. This past weekend we went camping. Just because we could. There's a nice… MORE

About this Cook
I've been married for 32 years, and live in Ohio. We have a daughter who is married and lives nearby. Our son graduated from college and moved to South Dakota. He has his own place but still goes to visit my sister and brother-in-law and have dinner with them occasionally. We have a black lab that gets to go duck hunting with dad, 2 cats, 2 cockatiels. We own a Mexican restaurant and are learning alot about the food industry. I love to eat, go camping, read, spend time with family and friends, watch movies, and drink wine; not necessarily in that order.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake - anything chocolate is fine with me. Seafood, chicken dishes and slow-cooker fare.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My husband and I enjoy cooking together with wine. We pop open a bottle of wine and get cooking. :-)
My cooking triumphs
Whenever I can put together a meal that gets many compliments and leaves the diners satisfied is a triumph in my book! I love to cook meals for family and friends.
My cooking tragedies
When I was first married we had my grandparent's-in-law over for a pot roast dinner. The meat came out great, but the potatoes and carrots were still half raw. My husband's grandfather went to cut his fork into a carrot and it flew off his plate. He looked at me, winked, and said he loved his carrots that way!

Affy Tapple Salad
Yummy! Very easy to make and it comes together nicely! I did find that 2 cups of peanuts seemed like an awful lot as I was putting them into the mixture, so I ended up only using 1-1/2 cups and I think that was a perfect amount. I'm not sure about the serving size of 12; I think it would depend on what is considered a serving... but it fit perfectly into a 2 quart dish. This is a dish you can make relatively inexpensively yet it is a nice presentation. Looks as pretty as it tastes!

Smooth Buttercream Frosting
This is a great recipe! I like sweet buttercream frosting, but most people do not. I believe this fits the bill! I made a birthday cake that was shared with many people, some who do not care for sweets and they all declared this delicious! It was just the perfect spreading consistency, too.

Easy Lemon Cookies
I made these to take to a "room-painting party" at my daughter and son-in-law's new home. I provided lunch and cleaned up while everyone else picked a room and got busy painting. These cookies were a hit, but I think they weren't really lemon-y enough - next time I'll add some lemon zest to them.
