I'm a country housewife that loves trying new things, both culinary and with life in general. I grow my own vegetables during the summer months and also raise my own poultry for meat and eggs and meat rabbits. During the fall and winter we hunt for venison, which we also enjoy.
My favorite things to cook
Desserts are my unofficial specialty, as it seems the thing I do the best and seems the most requested by friends and family. But I also love to stir fry and make home-style food using long treasured family recipes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Getting together for Thanksgiving and Christmas with 3 generations all helping to cook the meals.
My cooking triumphs
Butter Rum Cake...Maker's Mark Bread Pudding...Gingersnaps...Persimmon Cookies.
My cooking tragedies
Bread dough and pie crust. I'm glad my husband does both excellently.
