I resolved to spend more time in my kitchen this year.  I have done that, somewhat.  But, for a few months now I've been pondering where I could go now in my kitchen.  I know my way around it pretty well and I wanted to go on a new journey. Have a new adventure.  I needed some spice in my… MORE

I'm not a real superstitious person, but you won't see me waiting for a black cat to cross my path either.  Friday morning I arrived at work, wondering just what would happen on this "unlucky" day - Friday the Thirteenth!  My day went pretty well - all day long.  Saturday went pretty well,… MORE

Can you remember what you were doing a year ago at this time?  I can with extreme clarity!  I would have been climbing out of my son's old bedroom window, Jon behind me, and our neighbor standing in the yard with a chainsaw.   We had just had a HUGE tree fall on our house, yard, and garage. … 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!
