Every since I was a little girl I would love to cook and bake. My grandmother on my mom's side was a very good baker, she was known for her pies and her bread in the small town where she worked and lived. My grandfather on my dad's side worked in a restaurant as a young man in Pittsburgh. So I guess I am blessed with good "Cooking genes". In a world of "take out" I still like to be domestic. My son and husband enjoy the benefits of that. I am in the Food Service Dept of the Middle/High School in my area. I have been married for 21 years and I have a 101/2 yr old son, I also have 2 dogs. (1 beagle& 1 bassethound)
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake bread, cakes, cookies, pies and I like to try alot of Italian and comfort food recipes....
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love making my husband's grandmother's Guelette cookie recipe. It has been in the family for many many years. The only thing that I do different is that I have an electric iron in which to make them. I love to cook Italian family recipes.
My cooking triumphs
I have won blue ribbons for two of my apple pies and for a Hershey's chocolate cake @ a county fair nearby my town
My cooking tragedies
You have to have some tragedies in order to suceed in any cooking or baking. I have had a few and probably will have more in the future......
