My daughter and her husband went on vacation, leaving their cocker spaniel with us.  Maggie just turned a year old two weeks ago, my Suzy is 21 months old and Missy is almost 12 years old.  Missy and Suzy are labs - considerably larger than Maggie.  But - Maggie has no idea she is a small… MORE

Three months ago my black lab, Suzy, had surgery to repair her torn ligament.  For anyone who reads my blogs, I wrote all about it back in March and April.  Today marks an important milestone in her recovery - she gets to come out of her crate!!  WooHoo!!  Suzy has been confined 24/7 to being… 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!
