I've been married to my high school sweetheart for 25 years. We have 2 daughters, the oldest has left us for her new life and career as a Pharmacy Tech. The younger is attending college to become an Ultrasound Tech.
My favorite things to cook
Comfort foods, we are a meat and potatoes family. But I love trying new things too. If it sounds good, I will give it a go. My hubby is an avid hunter and fisherman so there is no shortage of animal products for me to choose from.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My background is from the Netherlands. I really enjoy preparing meals that I learned from my Mom (those are my comfort foods).
My cooking triumphs
My first Christmas dinner with all the fixin's. It was the first dinner that I made everything from appetizers to dessert to late snack. Everything was delicious and needless to say everyone had to roll themselves out the door. That was about 10 years ago. I've been hooked ever since.
My cooking tragedies
My worst was many years ago before my kids. I was going to make a pot of venison soup. I put the bones in a pot filled with water on the stove and turned it on. I figured it would take a while to boil so went to take a shower. Got out of the shower and got ready for bed (I think you can guess what happened next). I was woken up by my husband coming home from a poker game and a house filled with the worst smelling, charcoal burnt pot. After we got everything aired out and put away we had a good laugh. Funny how he still brings that up ever now and again. I guess he's just trying to keep me on my toes.
