Hello from beautiful northwestern PA. I am a self-employed gardener, so it is kind of obvious that I love the outdoors. I am a single parent of a great 11 year old son named Ryan, he is my joy. I just turned the big 4-0 this year... and SURVIVED!!! In addition to my son, I am also raising 2 of my nephews (ages 13 & 6)... and my Mother ( she has lived with me since shortly after my Father passed away... and yes, we DO get along!!)We are a unique family, but we're happy(or maybe I mean "crazed"...LOL)! My favorite outside activities are working in the garden, and biking with my boys; favorite inside activity is baking, and trying new recipes out on the "guinea pigs"!! I love cookbooks and gardening books, and have a bunch of them... some old, and obscure, but very useful anyway.My biggest pet peeve is the mistreatment of children...makes my normally controlled red-head temper burn red-hot!! My passion is organic vegetable gardening... there is no place I would be than in my garden, growing safe, healthy food for my family.
My favorite food?? Honestly, I would have to say ice cream. But my favorite foods to cook are rices, potatoes, and pastas...I have a lot of fun with them, and my boys never know how they will get them from one time to the next!! Dishes I am famous for making... my slow roasted turkey breast, "throw it in the pan" dinner, vegetable beef soup, chili, my homemade applesauce (followed someone else's recipe once, and no one would eat it!), and my "surprise pie". Favorite TYPE of restaurant is the little "hole in the wall" places... you know, the "NOT QUITE fine dining" places that give you exactly what you want, exactly the way you want it.In one little place like that I was even invited to come back into the kitchen and show the cook how to prepare the dish my way when I made a suggestion for a new menu item... it probably helped that I knew the owner, but it was a fun experience.
