I enjoy working in my flowers,and gardening.I enjoy doing crafts of several different kinds.Searching for new recipes and collecting cookbooks is a fun passtimeI enjoy.One of these days I would love to have my own cookbook published.I am a very energetic person & I like it that way.
My favorite things to cook
Baking is relaxing for me,lately I have been getting into Mediterranean cooking.Mexican,Itialian is a fav.also.But the all time favs are fried chicken,meatloaf can't go wrong there.
My cooking triumphs
I think when I was catering was the most exciting time nothing really huge but it was alot of fun,lots of long sleepless nights but to see happy faces & full tummy's that is all worth it.
My cooking tragedies
When I was about 14 or so my family and I was getting ready for Thanksgiving and I was in charge of the pumpkin pies and instead of using sugar I used salt.Thank-god I caught it before we had baked the whole thing.I had to start over I learned a lesson from that one read and dbl.check your ingredients.
