I'm 42 years old and divorced.. about to take the plunge again with my southern man in South Carolina. I will be moving there hopefully very soon. Kind of a scary thing moving that far from family but I'm sure I'll get over it. I can't quite cope with the "palmetto bugs" down there tho... jeez.. put a saddle on those things and ride em cowboy! I love to read Stephen King and I love movies of pretty much any variety. Music is one of my top three as well. Haven't had a lot of time or inclination to do much cooking "out of the ordinary" or anything but the quick and easy common things but I'm really interested in giving it the ol college try! UPDATE: I am now 43 and HAVE TAKEN THE PLUNGE! I am now married to my South Carolina man and residing down south. I love it but I miss my family back home.
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy making pastries, cookies, cakes... things of that nature. I haven't been big on the main dishes but I'm ready to give that a try too. I'm rather tired of the every day stuff.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Hot cross buns at easter time... cinnamon buns for christmas... yorkshire pudding with roast beef... and rice pudding... jelly roll... and scones. No one makes it like Mom did.
My cooking triumphs
I made a pretty rockin good black forrest cake once. Lot of work went into that.
My cooking tragedies
Steak on a bbq... ugh... i give up
