Thanksgiving is a time to remember the things you are thankful for.  This year I don't have to go back very far to realize just how lucky I am.  Hurricane Sandy changed many peoples lives and living at the Jersey shore gave my family a lot to be thankful for. The night of the storm was very… MORE

When my kids were little, we always made Halloween an exciting time.  It would begin at the beginning of October with decorating the front picture window with a grave yard scene.  Hubby and the kids would venture into the woods and bring home all size branches that they would turn into… MORE

One of my most favorite things to do is to create.   So, when Allrecipes gave the "Allstars" the assignment of creating a new recipe using an Al Fresco product, I was really enthused.  Although blogging is not my "thing" I need to share just how I came up with my recipe. Seeing how Al Fresco… MORE

I remember the day so well that my daughter, Tami, phoned and said she found this wonderful site called Allrecipes on the computer.  She said she had been going there everyday making something new for dinner and how happy and enthused the whole family was.  She suggested I take a look at the… MORE

As a child, did you ever hold a little yellow buttercup flower under your chin to see if you liked butter?  I used to announce that I liked butter before anyone could ever tell me I didn't.  This is my oldest memory concerning my love for butter. My favorite flavor butter is brown sugar -… MORE

About Me
I have been happily married for 47 years and we have 2 grown children and 4 grandchildren. My son and his family live nearby and my daughter and her family live 3 hours away.
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking things I can be creative with. My favorite thing to make is a new recipe. Using fresh grown herbs and home grown vegetables has added a lot of satisfaction to my cooking. I love presentation and the WOW factor! Catching fish in the morning and having them for dinner is a real treat.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every Easter I hold the annual Easter Egg Hunt. Each year it grows more as the family expands. We spend Thanksgiving with my daughter's family near Hershey Pa. On even years, my son and his family join us. Good food, good times in the kitchen, good friends, and football, followed by early morning shopping and a night at Hershey Park for the kids.
My cooking triumphs
My sister and I made my mother's wedding cake when, as a widow, she married one of my dad's friends. I don't think anything could top the feeling of finding one of my recipes mentioned in a magazine.
My cooking tragedies
While delivering a cake to my husband's workplace, my little one sat on it! I took the cake home, called hubby and the guys said "bring it anyway!" Fortunately, it had plastic wrap. Also, I set off the fire alarm at Disney World's Fort Wilderness while cooking bacon. The fire car came with it's lights flashing. It was soooo embarrassing.
