The number "13" has long been seen as unlucky. Not this time around. All but two of this week's recipes are the 5 star variety, at least by my rating standards. I hope you'll find one or two that you might enjoy!   Turkey Sliders 5 Stars Review:  These were delicious!… MORE

That's what I wondered, so I decided to give them a try. Here's the play by play... First you have to blanch the almonds. This isn't part of the recipe, but I never seem to have the blanched variety on hand. Just pour boiling water over them, let them sit for one minute, then drain MORE

Here's the newest version of Formerly Faceless Recipes. Lots of recipes using strawberries this time around. My garden is blessed with the "everbearing" variety and I'm getting up to a quart a day! Right now the dreaded Japanese beetles are giving me a run for my money, though. Here 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.
