Born and raised in Oklahoma. Married to a hometown boy for 35 years. We have one married son and two 14 year old labs. I recently retired and have been cooking up a storm. I've gathered most of the new recipes from allrecipes. This is a great web site.
My favorite things to cook
Chicken Tiki Marsala, Bread, Pork Loins (experimenting with different marindaed), Piroskis (I love trying different meat mixtures) and cookies of all kinds.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making a typical Thanksgiving dinner. I have made the same cornbread stuffing for years. The recipe was given to me by my mother who got it from my grandmother.
My cooking triumphs
Every time I cook I feel like I have triumphed. It's so rewarding to hear the praise from my husband and family.
My cooking tragedies
Years ago I attempted to make a cheese soup. Somehow it turned into a yellow rubber frisbee type of object. We had a really good laugh at that one.
