Now that cooler weather is here I know I'll be cooking up a storm, making soups and stews.  I like to find new recipes, as well as pull out the old faithfuls.  Last night I decided that I was going to find an underdog recipe - you know the ones - the ones with few stars, and try out a few. … MORE

I have a very good friend who stops in about once a week to visit.  We have been friends since our boys were 6 years old and joined the Youth Wrestling Team. They were about the same size and became not only wrestling partners but good friends. They're now 21 years old and still look each… MORE

A few weeks ago I went with my son and husband to a Controlled Waterfowl Hunt Drawing.  For those of you not familiar - this is where a bunch of hunters go (dressed in all their camouflage finest, with duck & goose calls hung around their necks) to sign up and hopefully get their name dr MORE

Hello!  I have returned as a blue-star member.  I let my subscription expire in August, figuring I should be "thrifty" and save some money.  As you can see, that didn't last long.... I found I enjoyed blogging and I missed doing it.  So - here I am - again.  Besides - since… 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!
