When I first started "lurking" around on AR, I posted a thread asking how people came up with their names on here.  There were some interesting responses, so I thought I'd post a blog on the same subject to see what people have to say.  It might be fun to learn this about each… MORE

OK, I wrote a blog about how nothing matters when my boy is playing baseball.  Well, when he's actually playing the game, that's right -nothing else matters.  But - Mother Nature does get in the way! Today was THE day - Steve was finally getting to play baseball after a long,… MORE

As of 3:00 pm I am officially on Spring Break!  Hurray!  And, I don't have to cook tonight - we're heading to a friend's house for pizza night.  What a way to start a break - no cooking and fun company.  I have been friends with Al since we were 16, that's for 32… MORE

My son is a junior in college who plays baseball.  He is only a sophomore for athletic eligibility due to having had major UCL repair surgery (Tommy John surgery) in August of 2008.  Steve has played baseball since he was 5 years old and was one of the rare 5 year olds that actually… MORE

Yesterday I took Suzy back to the vet for a follow-up on her leg injury.  It wasn't a full 6 weeks yet, but I really didn't see the point in waiting as I had not noticed much difference in her limping.  So - the vet gives her a shot of "sleepy juice" (as she put it) and within seconds… MORE

I do have a wee bit 'o Irish in me. My Grandma was a red-haired, green-eyed little Irish woman named Molly Keaton before she got married.  So, in honor of her I always wear green on St. Patrick's Day.  I have to confess I don't much like corned-beef and I hate cabbage, but I'll throw… MORE

I'm feeling a little "down" this afternoon.  I always get this way when my "baby"  leaves to go back to college.  He's been home all week for Spring break.  When he walked in the door last Friday evening our dogs went crazy!  Their boy was home!!  … MORE

I grew up in a small town.  One that didn't have many places for a teenager to work.  We had a couple fast food places, a grocery store, drug store and a small five and dime, not much else.  And, a small amusement park.  So, when I turned 16 and decided I wanted a summer job… MORE

Today was a really nice day.  My son, Steve, is home on spring break from college so I decided to take today off and have some bonding time.  Then, my husband decided to also take off.  So, we decided to get up early and take off on a Food & Redneck Tour.  What is a Food… MORE

If you've read my earlier blog "Halfway there" then you know about my 17-month old black lab's injury to her leg and her prescribed treatment of rest.   Anyways, on Sunday my husband went to the local Tractor Supply Co. store to buy himself a toolbox.  He came home with not only… 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!
