Three weeks ago our 17-month old black lab (Suzy) came up lame.  She started limping and holding her left rear leg up.  So, off to the vet we went.  The diagnosis:  A partially torn ligament.  The treatment:  Keep her quiet for 6 weeks, no running or jumping,… MORE

I've been married over 28 years and have 2 kids.  The hubby still lives here, daughter is married and out of the house, and son is away at college most of the year.  That means for 28 years I have rarely been left home alone.  When those moments occurred, I treasured them. … MORE

This morning I decided to stop at the grocery store on my way to work and pick up some fruit and a pre-made sandwich for my lunch.  At 6:30 a.m. there were only 2 other cars in the parking lot.  I made my choices - an Italian sub and some pre-cut mango (what I don't eat the iguana… MORE

A few days ago I was on the RE and asked for advice on just exactly how to make bean and ham soup.  I had a ham bone and dried beans.  I didn't say it then, but I'll admit it now.  I had made bean and ham soup once before in my 28+ years of marriage, about 28 years ago. … 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!
