I've been married for 31 years, and live in Ohio. We have a daughter who is married and lives nearby. I am enjoying listening and watching her and her husband learn to cook new recipes. Our son recently graduated from college and moved to South Dakota. He just got his own place but still goes to visit my sister and brother-in-law and have dinner with them. We have a black lab that gets to go duck hunting with dad, 2 cats, 2 cockatiels, and an iguana (I'm the Iguana Mama until my son can come fetch his lizard from Ohio). We own a Mexican restaurant and are learning alot about the food industry. I love to eat, go camping, read, watch movies, and drink wine.
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!
