I have been cooking since I was about 10 years old. At the age of 12 I could cut up a whole chicken and have supper ready by the time my mom got home at 5:30, by the way, I am in my early 40's.
My favorite things to cook
Pasta dishes and one meal dishes such as chili, beef stew or red beans and rice, so that's two dishes. I love homemade cakes!!!!!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love Thanksgiving and Christmas time when everyone, even the little ones, are in the kitchen at one time or the other, either cooking or eating something. I love the big challenge of cooking a turkey that is not too dry and has a great taste!
My cooking triumphs
My turkey this Thanksgiving was the best that I think I have ever cooked. It was not dried out and it had a wonderful taste, I must admit that it was combination effort, thanks Andy and Stephanie!!!!
My cooking tragedies
My biggest one was a pumpkin soup recipe that I had gotten off of TV when we lived in Washington State. It was so bad that I wouldn't even eat it. My husband who has always eaten eveything that I have cooked for 20 years only ate a few spoon fulls until I told him to please stop, it was terrible. My two girls didn't even try to be nice about it and I didn't blame them. Poor babies!!!!
