Mom of 3. All but one have moved out. WOW - - I just had to delete almost my WHOLE profile because it had to do with my EX husband!! (YAY) I LOVE to cook, love to create and succeed at it!

My favorite things to cook
Chicken and Dumplings,Green Chili and Chicken Pot Pie. I could make these in my sleep! Never follow a recipie (although I could write the basics down I guess....) and people just love them all.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom has a HUGE scrapbook where she has collected recipies - I started my own years ago and although not as HUGE as hers, it is a fun collection and used more than my cook books (although this website is becoming a fast 2nd - I will print off my favorites from here and cut and paste into my book). But what I REALLY love are the favorite recipes that friends and family have written in their own handwriting that I have kept!
My cooking triumphs
I'm really good at "throwing together". I know how to taste and add. Now that WORKS with cooking, but not with baking... :-( **BUT** I've found I can do it with PIES and still have that same fun - where I will think that something might taste good and as long as I have a good crust, it usually will!
