    About Me

    Greetings from the palm of the Mitten State! I'm a 40-somthing gal with an awesome husband, Todd, and step-son, David. And I had the great privilege to be mom to the world's best cat, Bentley, for almost 12 years. As of 3/10/09 he's now free from all the ailments that plagued his past few years and is now a soft and gentle spirit who will be with me always. He was my best friend and the first real love of my life and leaves a cat-shaped hole in life.

    February 4, 2010, 2 new kitties joined our family.  Nick and Nate were adopted from our local humane society and fill our home with purrs and laughter and lots of fur.  We're lucky to have these two sweet kitty boys with us.

    I'm a certified medical coder but currently enjoying being a stay-at-home cat mom.  In past work lives I've been a corporate travel consultant, an auto claim assistant, a loan clerk, a secretary and an usher.

    I like to cook and LOVE to bake. It's great to share the gift of good food with my sweet wonderful husband, family and friends and co-workers. And I try to enter a couple different baked goods in my county fair each year.

    When I'm not working in the kitchen I enjoy reading, walking, scrapbooking, genealogy, and visiting with family and friends. I also love animals, and was a cat care volunteer at a local shelter for many years.


    R?E'S STAR RATINGS (effective for 2007 ratings and beyond)
    5 -- Amazing! Incredible! Want to eat it or drink it all the time! Obviously this wowed us. Maybe it?s too decadent to make very often, but we can dream.

    4 -- Great! We loved it and will probably be having this frequently.

    3 -- Good . We liked it and might have it again, possibly with some changes.

    2 -- Passable. We ate it but won?t eat any leftovers and won?t be making this again, at least not as written. This will probably be due most often to one flavor being too strong.

    1 -- Inedible. There?s a critical error in the recipe.

    Favorite Foods

    • My favorite foods are rice and mushrooms and peanut butter and macadamia nuts (not necessarily all together!). I also love dried fruits like cherries, apricots and cranberries, which you'll frequently find in my recipes.

      Going out to eat? I could go for good egg rolls (bean sprouts NOT cabbage) every day. And I love Mr. Pita sandwiches and Starbucks' Mocha Valencia, and orange glazed scones from Panera Bread.

      Baking is my favorite part of cooking and I especially enjoy making cakes and cookies and have also learned to make yeast breads, which is a lot of fun. Now that I live where there's a county fair I enter some baked goods each year. I've got 4 blue ribbons so far!

      I really enjoy trying out cocktail recipes, too, and my liqueur collection is always growing. Try Bacardi Ciclon if you haven't had it yet and can find it. Part rum, part tequila, total great smooth taste!

      Some things I don't like:
    • Organ meats
    • Most fish, although I enjoy shrimp and scallops
    • Cilantro
    • Anything loaded with onions and garlic
    • Eggs
    • A number of veggies (yes, I know they're good for me!) like broccoli, asparagus, brussels sprouts, cooked spinach and creamed corn.
