Last night was a long awaited night for me - very long - 32 years to be exact.  For everyone else besides myself and my friend of 33 years it was just a little over a month wait.  I'm talking about the Bob Seger concert in Cleveland, Ohio.  Originally it was scheduled for April 7th but Bob… MORE

It's been awhile since I wrote.  I've been busy with "real" life - good and bad.  My brother who is only in his 40's suffered a heart attack.  Lucky for him (and us who love him) he is OK, and this may be a good wake up call for him to begin a new healthy lifestyle.   I got sick again, went… MORE

They say April showers bring May flowers.  I guess there's some merit to that old saying.  When I was a kid I loved going to Grandma and Grandpa's house.  They lived on a farm; not the kind that had animals (that would have been over the top!) but a vegetable farm. Grandpa… 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!
