Like most girls, I grew up watching my aunts and my grandmother in the kitchen. These days I still enjoy the traditions set down by my family, but I'm always looking for the next great dish.
My favorite things to cook
Cookies, Cakes, Pastas, and Soups mostly.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas baking is probably the most exciting tradition. We like to do the favorites---peanut butter cookies, gingerbread men, haystacks...but we always try something new each year.
My cooking triumphs
My potato soup and Derby pie are two of my biggest hits so far, and both recipes came from this site...SHHH!!
My cooking tragedies
I've been known to ruin biscuits on most occasions...or as my family dubs them, "hockey pucks"...now we go canned.
