This year I will be married to my husband Tom 12yrs. Time flies!! I have two beautiful kids. Our son Hayden Thomas is 11yrs old and into sports & video games. Our daughter Addison Claire is 7yrs old and is taking ballet, tap & acrobats & loves to draw. We also have a chubby puppy (Shorkie) named Moe. Cooking is a hobby of mine. I love it. I grew up in a Polish family with many great cooks. My grandfather owned one of the best meat shops in town...now his grandson's own the buisness. Cooking is a family tradition. I grew up eating large, homemade meals. Lots of meat and potatoes. I am trying to use this site as my personal cookbook. Hoping to not use my recipebox anymore. I have a little pet peeve. It is when people ask for a recipe, because they liked something you made...and then don't follow the recipe given. Go figure!! If you change my recipe....and it doesn't turn out...please don't tell anyone you got the recipe from me. LOL.
