I am guessing Allrecipes does not take recipe submissions anymore since there are so many? Anyway I don't see where you can do that if you still can? But what I am looking for is a place to write my recipes and keep track of them?  I am wondering do I have to do that here in my blog? I would… MORE

Hello Friends, I never was one to have a diary or write deep thoughts, but I do like the idea of blogging about my passion and love for cooking, baking and food. I am a horticulturist/farmer/cook. Farming and cooking have always been a natural duo for me, I don't quite see how you can be a… MORE

About Me
Hi, I love to cook and started cooking when I was 12 years old. I learned by watching my Mother and self teaching. I collect cookbooks but my collection is pretty much decorative since discovering Allrecipes! My husband and I love to garden and have a 1 acre veggie garden through which we grow produce for community food programs/families in need. I love to can and preserve our harvest. My specialty is baking and impromptu meals.
My favorite things to cook
Cookies, comfort food, veggie dishes, pies, canning/preserving. I'll try any recipe once.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making a huge spread for Thanksgiving, Turkey of course with traditional trimmins. And an even bigger one for Christmas with traditional and "new" recipes. I try to make at least 3 new cookies for Christmas that I have never made before.
My cooking triumphs
My strawberry jam, apple butter and orange marmalade ALL took 1st place at this years county fair. Orange marmalade also took Best of Fair!
My cooking tragedies
Dropping an entire frosted cake! And..have a "beer can" chicken on the grill fly like a rocket across the backyard! The combination of alcohol, heat and opening a grill lid suddenly can cause danger, beware! My dog thought it was a very cool sight though.
