I am quite fortunate - my family actually likes each other and enjoy one another's company.  I've always said that, and believed it, but was it really true?  I mean, every holiday we get together and there is always plenty of laughing and the food is enjoyed and highly complimented by all. … MORE

I gotta hand it to our Sunshine Committee at work.  I believe this group is the best it's ever been in the 21 years since I've worked at the school.  In the past the Sunshine Committee collected $10 from everyone at the beginning of the school year and saved that money to buy cards for people… MORE

Last night I went to a Pampered Chef party at one of my best friend's houses.  She loves to host those parties and I love to go to them.  For some reason, it always puts me in the cooking mood.  And, lately I haven't been in the eating mood, let alone the cooking mood.  All that has changed. … 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!
