I love cooking for my family and enjoying good food and good company.
My favorite things to cook
Where to begin...I enjoy making Sunday breakfast, appetizers, chili, beef stroganoff, slow cooker pot roasts,cookies, and I have gotten requests for my chocolate chip banana bread.Yum!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Well my 'yooper' family traditions include pasties, meat pies, and delicious triple berry pies. My southern family has taught me how to make fried chicken, cornbread, and mouth watering peach cobbler. I am feel so grateful to have learned so many traditions from both sides of my family.
My cooking triumphs
A layered trifle of strawberries and blueberries for an Easter supper, it was a hit! And making my first Thanksgiving turkey, it was a lot more work then I ever realized my mother went through, but they pay off was well worth it!
My cooking tragedies
Well like every adventurous cook there has been a few along the way, I have a bad habit of burning things..Like flicking on the broiler just to "brown" the top then walking away..But I am slowly learning my lessons. :)
