I'm retired from a major candy company, where I worked for 16 years making their ice cream products and some candy products. My favorite things to do are spend time with my three dogs. Lily, my 4 year old boxer, Oreo a 13 yr mixed breed Lab and Niki my 4 yr Long haired Chihuahua mix, who we rescued from the shelter when he was two. It was his second time there in his two short years. He's a sweetie so I really don't understand why he was left there twice. (Well, he can be a bit bossy when he wants a treat, but aren't we all?)And, I love to read just about anything.
My favorite things to cook
Slow cooker and one dish meals. I'm limited by my families like and dislikes though, so I have to improvise on a lot of the recipes I make.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I don't think we have any. No one else in my family really enjoys cooking except my brother-in-law. He's becoming a excellent baker.
There isn't any one dish we all have to have every year except maybe bread stuffing at Thanksgiving.
My cooking triumphs
Anything my picky mother and two adult sons will eat and enjoy. I often end up making two different entrees for the same meal.
My cooking tragedies
Fish! I hate fixing it, and can't eat it afterwards anyway. If someone else prepares it, it tastes much better.
