After trying green mole a couple weeks ago, I've been inspired to make my own mole - either the traditional, brown or red, or green.  Turns out I made the tranditional kind.  Sort of. Once again we've been thrown into winter-like weather.  I had to scrape ice off my windows this morning!  So,… MORE

No, I did not find a green mole in my yard - I ate green mole! Sauce that is. Yesterday morning I stayed home to do some laundry while Jon went to the restaurant to check out the chip warmer.  Federico said it had been making some "weird" noises and he thought the motor might be going bad. … MORE

This weekend was a pretty good weekend for me.  I got some good cooking time in - and we got to eat some yummy food because of it!  A while back I needed buttermilk for something I was making and for some reason I bought a half gallon instead of the normal half pint or pint sized I usually… MORE

Last week was my Spring Break and I made the most of it, even though it was more like a winter break since it was so cold and snowy. Our camping trip was cancelled to wait for warmer weather but I quickly filled my days with fun things to do. Much of my time was spent bonding with my daughter… MORE

About Me
I've been married for 32 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 a black lab that gets to go duck hunting with dad, 2 cats, 2 cockatiels. 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!
