Back when I was a kid it took forever to move through just one year. It seemed like Christmas would never come back around.  Now it seems like in the time it takes to put together a nice pan of lasagna my baby grew up and has flown the nest!  Just a few years ago I was choking back tears as… MORE

As anyone who has read any of my blogs knows - I am an animal lover - especially of dogs.  I didn't learn that on my own - I have two parents that taught me how to love Man's Best Friend.  A few blogs back I wrote of my chocolate lab, Missy, and her littermate, Prince's 13th birthday… MORE

Hubby and I had a busy weekend - it was a party from Friday until today!  Friday evening we went to our favorite Mexican restaurant our friends own - Acapulco Mexican Grill.  We weren't planning on partying.  We were just going to eat and see if we could "borrow" our adopted  Mexican… MORE

Friday night was a fun, educational night out for Jon and me.  My parents had tickets to see Cesar Millan.  Yes, Cesar the Dog Whisperer.  They asked us to go with them.  I'm not a TV watcher so I had never seen any of the shows, but I have heard of the Dog Whisperer.  Who hasn't?   He was at… 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!
