I'm a high school English teacher with a bit of wanderers' blood. I love to cook and bake. The greatest compliment I received was when a student wrote me a note at the end of the year that said, "Miss B., your cookies may very well be the cure for cancer."
My favorite things to cook
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas and Thanksgiving dinner with the turkey, mashed potatoes, and everything else. Our family is blessed with great cooks. My nephews adore my cookies, blueberry sour cream pie, and chicken enchiladas. When my eldest nephew got back from Iraq, those were his requested foods.
My cooking triumphs
My sister considers herself the lasagna diva. I combined a couple of recipes and came up with a lasagna that beats hers.
My cooking tragedies
Spaghetti, texas sheet cake--'nuff said.
