I am a 68 year old Mom of three Sons, three Grandaughters. And A Grandson serving Afganistan with the US Army. I have enjoyed cooking for my Husband if 48 years, he thinks I am a wonderful cook, but he likes just about everything.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite meal to prepare and eat is,
Pinto and great northern beans mixed
Green leaf lettuce, wilted with bacon fat.
Green onions chopped in with lettuce.
Corn bread and fried potatoed on the side.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Finger foods on Christmas Eve with all my family here, then open gifts.
But most of all is making Nanna Fried Chicken for the Family. My Grandson always requests Nanna fried chicken when he comes home, and I always make it for him to take on the plane back to base.
My cooking triumphs
My fried chicken
My corn bread, which is awesome
My strawberry and chocolate husbands delight.
My husband is a diabetic, so I have changed the desert to A sugar free and fat free recipe.
My cooking tragedies
The one that I remember most is when I cooked my first turkey, and left the giblet bag inside. And I usually have to try a new recipe a couple timer before it turns out well.
