July 12th is just around the corner; which means the Buckeye Bash will be here before we know it!  I can hardly believe I am the host of this event - I've only been to one round-up - the Buckeye Bash of 2012 at Bellepepper's house.  That was a fabulous day and I'm hoping I can do at least… MORE

Yesterday I made a farewell dinner for my little sister and her family. It was farewell, but not Goodbye. They have decided to pack up and head South. To South Carolina. My sister accepted a job there and has actually been working/living there since mid-May. My brother-in-law has been here… MORE

I've never made a corn fritter before. In fact, I'm not real sure I'd ever even eaten one before. But, then one day my cousin posted on Facebook a recipe he had found in his Grandmother's (my Great Aunt) recipe files. It was called "Maude's Corn Fritters". Well it just so happens that Maude… MORE

Things have been pretty busy around my house of late.  Between Annie the new puppy and daughter, Kristal, moving there hasn't been much time for home-cooked meals.  Lucky for us we have the restaurant to go to for those nights when we just don't have the time to cook.This weekend was one of… 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!
