Being the mother of an active teenage girl, I hear this everyday! The biggest complaint from my daughter is that she is starving at school, hours before lunch time. Of course, a big breakfast is not something she wants at o'dark thirty in the morning. I have been trying different things for… MORE

Sometimes my husband says I’d rather spend time browsing allrecipes.com and ‘talking’ with my cooking friends than spending time watching TV with him, or helping him fix things around the property.  Sometimes I think he’s right!I remember getting Internet access for the first time in 1999; we… MORE

Why is it that the adjective “buttery” is so often used to describe food and drink? Clearly butter is highly desirable, and for good reason; it has a divine, slightly sweet and delicate flavor, a rich and creamy feel in your mouth and there is just no imitation that can come close to the real… MORE

Christmas 2011 has come and gone, and it will be one of the most memorable of all Christmases for me.  I was able to gather “my” side of the family together at our home, no small miracle for sure!  I have a small family, just my husband and teenage daughter. I have only one older brother and… MORE

About Me
My adventure in cooking began when my mom gave me the Betty Crocker Boys and Girls cookbook when I was 7, I would read it cover to cover and try out the recipes whenever Mom was willing to help me. I still have that battered old cookbook, and my daughter's first cooking attempts were inspired from those same recipes. She is a teenager now, and I love having her cook with me in the kitchen. I am happily married, entering my 34th year as an RN, and work part-time at a local hospital. Oh... I love my dogs, my horse and..... my chickens (they bless me with plenty of fresh eggs every day)!!
My favorite things to cook
Anything ethnic, soups and stews, spicy and highly seasoned foods and the tried and trues that my family loves. I also love to do desserts and that is what I am usually asked to bring to pot lucks.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Having a family dinner is our most important tradition in general but there is always Jambalaya on Fat Tuesday, shrimp scampi with homemade fettucine every Valentine's Day, cheese fondue on special occasions, Black Eye Peas on New Years and the dozens upon dozens of Christmas cookies!
My cooking triumphs
No doubt the Frozen Grand Marnier Souffle I made for a Christmas Eve dinner when I was 19! So scrumtious and pretty too!
My cooking tragedies
Eggplant Parmesan..a big gooey mess and why did I try??? I hate eggplant!
