My favorite things to cook
My favorite things to cook are those that my husband and 8 children will enjoy. We do a lot of baking - cookies, cakes, muffins, and breads - which make good meal-strechers for a family of 10. I also enjoy trying to imitate things I've eaten in restaurants.
My cooking triumphs
My most recent cooking triumph was Chicken Francaise. I had it in a local restaurant and enjoyed it so much that I wanted to be able to make it at home. I found a recipe on the internet and, with a little tweaking, hit upon a great imitation. At a recent birthday dinner, my daughter ordered Chicken Francaise and after a bite or two, leaned over to me and whispered that our recipe was better than the restaurant's. Can't beat that!!
