So Many Recipes, So Little Time...

I recently purchased frog legs at my local grocery store. It was a spur of the moment purchase, I'll admit. Though I'd been curious about them, I'd never seen them for sale before, so I snagged a pack (frozen) and hit Allrecipes.com for some ideas. Not too many. Still, one sounded tasty: Butter… MORE

Promise - this blog contains no rant! It's a simple, straightforward FOOD BLOG! After the last one, I'm avoiding hot-button topics and sticking to food. This is a quest to give a boost to faceless recipes; you know, those recipes that have no photos. Many people look at the p MORE

So, here I go ranting again. I was cruising recipes and found one for Cold Cocoa Smoothie. The title sounded good, but the rating wasn't so great. There were only three reviews, so I read them. Frankly this recipe sounded very similar to the Oreo milkshakes my youngest son likes to… MORE

Nancy Hilton posted a question on the recipe exchange recently that got me thinking. Click here for the original post. The idea was to give recipes a "face" so to speak. Many recipes sound delicious, but have no photos to go with them. This challenge sounded right up my… MORE

  Any recipe worth making twice in 8 days is worth blogging.             This is the case with Spiced Sweet Roasted Red Pepper Hummus.           Move over Red Betty: This is a job for Great White!… MORE

I have three boys. Needless to say, I don't have any hair to braid around here. So I decided to braid some bread instead.   Besides, I've been intrigued with these types of baked goods, so I had to do it out of curiosity.   I started with the Braided Easter Egg Bread recipe, but… MORE

About Me
I have three teenage sons who are picky eaters (especially the middle one). I try to cook things that they might enjoy trying, but they're not always willing to try new things. My husband started out a picky eater when we met back in 1986, but he's gotten much better and is willing to try ALMOST anything I make. In my spare time I teach second grade. I have introduced my students to cooking and/or new foods over the years.
My favorite things to cook
I love to try all sorts of new recipes, so I don't really have a favorite thing to cook. I enjoy using fresh ingredients from the garden and canning those ingredients to use year-round. I also enjoy baking treats for my second grade class. I'll try almost anything if I think my family will eat it. Of course, I've been known to try a recipe because I want to, whether they'll eat it or not.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love making the pumpkin pies and other desserts for Thanksgiving. I always like to try one new dessert for each holiday. Baking Christmas cookies is a tradition that goes back as long as I can remember.
My cooking triumphs
I've made some pretty cool cakes for my boys' birthdays. They include a firetruck, baseball, football, and Pokeball. I've also used shaped pans to decorate everything from Barney and Elmo, Power Ranger, Jeff Gordon's #24 racecar, football helmet, a dog and dog house, a monkey, a giant cupcake, and a penguin. Some recent cakes have been a pizza, chef's hat, and Topsy-Turvy (Mad Hatter Cake.) The last one didn't collapse - that was a real triumph! One of my best triumphs has been teaching my boys to cook. They'll never go hungry.
My cooking tragedies
The first time I cooked a turkey I relied on my thermometer to tell when it was done. It wasn't.
