When I started baking, many years ago, I was gung ho!  My first venture, into this culinary wonder ,was a coconut cake for my Hubby's birthday!  I spent the day with my MIL and she was to teach me the basics of baking.  You all know the rules... right? Measurements are to be precise. Room… MORE

Well ... these are the days of my life...!  I just have to say...28 days down!  Can we be considered non- smokers now?  I think so!  I'm so proud of Jim and myself.  Job done... maybe not as well as we could have, but no one said it would be easy!  On to the another great day of my life...

There is something to be said about time alone... I'm just thinkin' it is way over rated! For two weeks now I have been anticipating a day off!  You know... a real day off!  Jim is out of town for the night... Audrie's mom has the day off... and it is called a monday!  Yay ... right!  This is… MORE

About Me
I was a working mother of 2 boys! I didn't have much time for cooking... now that the boys are grown and on their own... I have been enjoying learning and appreciating the art of cooking. I started with a day of baking with my mother in law and I was hooked! Not to mention my new stepkids... what was two... now is four! Our family is growing we now have a grandson, Damien, and one on the way! My grandson loves his visits with Gramma and Grampa...We spend quality time in the kitchen snd chronical our visits here on AR!
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake! It is my therapy...I love to buy and read all types of recipe books ( call me old fashion ) but it's fun to pick out 1 recipe in a new book and try it the day I get the book!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My husband and I have great times cooking meals together! When the kids come to visit we let them request their menu of choice. Funny twist... my two boys request Jim's culinary feasts... Jim's two request Stepmom's dinner delights! Works out fine at the end of the day!
My cooking triumphs
Check out my pics, the wedding cake? It was my 1st attempt at a wedding cake... can you believe it... I still can't!
My cooking tragedies
so many... hard to pick just one! but isn't that the joy of cooking?
