You'll find this cake is good with ice cream, but that it's also delicate enough to serve small pieces for a tea.
My husband served in the military, and we spent 22 years moving around before "retiring" here. He's been a high school teacher, and I've been a wedding consultant. Now we're retiring again so we can have more time to spend with our two daughters and four granddaughters in the Midwest. "Grandpa" is looking forward to some good fishing!
My fiance and I like to hunt for wild asparagus come the spring. He's not much of a vegetable eaterbut when I roll up these easy, nutritious appetizers, he can't get enough of them. The roll-ups are ideal for children toothey're a fun way to "disguise" vegetables they usually turn down!
These buns regularly get packed as part of my husband's lunch! I've copied this recipe for many peopleone of the nice things about it is that it also makes very good breadsticks to take to covered-dish suppers or take to picnics.
I like to cook...and taste, too! In addition, I enjoy sewing and all kinds of crafts, and I've been fortunate to win several blue ribbons at Country Fair.
Meet the Cook: When I first made this pie for my family, the reactions weren't real words - they were more "Ooh!" and "Mmm!" I created it to enter in a local fair. My goal was an apple pie like no other, and it ended up winning third prize. ("That was very interesting!" one judge said.)
Working with children is something I love. In fact, I hold "Fun with Food" classes after school for elementary students ages 6-8. My own family consists of my husband and our daughter, 11.

My mom gave me the recipe for these twice-baked potatoes, and I altered them by adding garlic, bacon and green onions. They're perfect for a potluck or even an elegant meal. My two boys absolutely love them!

Cooking meats, I have to confess, isn't my specialty. But everyone who tastes this main-course dish wants more!
I'm a mostly at-home mom. I like to sew and read. I also enjoy gardeningwe grow a good-sized patch, and it's so nice to have fresh-picked tomatoes and spinach when I make salads.
I came across this recipe looking for an alternative to traditional sauces for holiday meats. Mostly, I serve it with holiday ham, and it goes over wellprobably because it is such a change of taste. But the glaze should be fine with almost any meat...and its cheesy color would add a festive touch to the table!
Our life's busy. In addition to being a farm records analyst, my husband's a minister. I work out of our homeour girls are 4 and 1as a hairstylist and Edd's secretary, and teach a morning each week at a Christian preschool.
