    About Me

    I was previously an elementary teacher until I got laid off due to budget cuts.  Now I work for a mortgage company in accounting and human resources.  While I still enjoy trying new recipes, my budget has gotten considerably smaller, and thus recently I am mostly cooking recipes that I have already made and know will turn out. 

    I, originally, came to this site in 2002 searching for a raisin stuffed cookie my paternal grandmother use to make for my father.  She had passed away 3 months earlier and though I had her recipe, it was incomplete.  I found an amazing community of chefs who were eager to help.  Using their help, I was able to recreate the cookie.  Since that January day in 2002, I have been hooked.

    All of the recipes I have posted are beloved family recipes or recipes I have tried that I am completely smitten with. 

    I try to rate every recipe I try, though I do admit there have been several recipes that I have not rated.  Those that fall into this category have come out so horribly that I am sure I did something wrong...but I am not willing to spend the money to repeat the recipe and thus provide a review.

    When I do not like a recipe, the lowest rating I will give it is 3 stars out of 5.  I do this because I know perhaps it could just be that I don't care for a particular flavor...but I don't want to discourage others from trying it.  This is unless I have followed the recipe to a T and it completely failed, in which case I would rate a 1.  If I give 5 stars to a recipe, it means I love it and will definitely make it again.  4 stars mean it was good, but I won't make it again. 


    When I am not busy in the kitchen, I love to read (historical fiction), and spend time with family and friends. I also love to travel. I have been fortunate enough to have visited 11 countries. I also lived in London for a bit.


    My favorite type of food is Japanese. I love sashimi! There are few foods I will not try.
