Married with four children.
My favorite things to cook
I love baking, canning, cooking up everything from quick and easy dinners to gourmet. I especially love making homemade apple pie, as well as pumpkin and butter tarts. Soups, stews, pot pies are other favourites.
My favorite family cooking traditions
One of our favourite things is making homemade pizza. Turkey dinner is a favourite time at our house, as well as much of the canning we do - expecially jams, relish and salsa. Our whole family, especially the kids, enjoy berry picking, grinding, peeling etc. that goes with "putting up" for the winter.
My cooking triumphs
I once made 10 pies one evening with my husband and oldest daughter's help (for a bake sale). Boy we were tired!
My cooking tragedies
I once accidently "broiled" a pie that I was taking to a family Thanksgiving dinner. I caught it before it was totally ruined, but it was too brown to serve at a dinner party so I had to buy a pie at a local bakery on the way. Interestingly, the bakery pie wasn't very good and my broiled pie (which my immediate family ate the next day) actually tasted very good.
