Since September 2 we have been living without a roof over our heads.  Well... figuratively speaking that is.  There has been a roof over my head; albeit a blue-tarp one.  After the huge tree fell (that was blogged about already) it seemed like it took forever for us to get everything assessed… MORE

Jon and I will be celebrating our 31st anniversary on Wednesday.  Last year our two kids surprised us with a party where all our close friends and family came to celebrate with us.  This year we were uncertain when we would be able to find time to celebrate.  This past week we decided to go… MORE

My last blog was all about my 23 year old son and his newfound cooking skills.  Well... yesterday I got to experience first-hand my daughter's cooking skills.  She's been married four years and technically I've known she knew how to cook.  I've even eaten some of her creations.  And they were… MORE

About Me
I've been married for 33 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 two black labs that get to go duck hunting with dad and two cats. 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!
