Married forever. 3 grown sons and 2 beautiful Granddaughters. Love to cook, hate to clean up. Fun to cook for Bunco buddies and family events. Favorite times are spent with family lounging in or tubing the river.
My favorite things to cook
Anything on the grill, best results over charcoal or mesquite. Can't get the hang of the propane grill yet.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Italian, South Texas Mexican food, good old southern dishes.
My cooking triumphs
I appreciate hearing the remarks my husband's co-workers say about drooling over the food he brings to work each day. My kids are spoiled. They would remark about the gross food at their friends homes. One son, after returning from a friends sleep-over, was telling me about the coolest new meal he had there. It had meat, potatoes and corn, and a brownie dessert. It was a TV dinner..... I realized that they didn't know what those were.
My cooking tragedies
I made a cake for my husband's (then boyfriend) 18th birthday while on vacation with my family in New Mexico. Not knowing about altitude adjustments -and being from flat south Texas - the cake looked like a swimming pool. I was bummed.
I also have a tendency to get side-tracked and burn things - have to start over.
