I'm a retired nurse. I've usually stayed with quick and easy recipes because it was quick and easy. Now that I have time to enjoy myself in the kitchen thats just what I'm doing.
My favorite things to cook
I love to try new recipes. My friends and family always expect to have one when they are invited for dinner. They are good natured and gracious about my disasters.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love the holidays when we have a large group over for dinner. We try to invite people who are alone during that time.
My cooking triumphs
Once I made a pie crust that looked like a piecrust.
My cooking tragedies
I've had so many of those. I think the most memorable one was when I cooked a prime rib packed in salt for Christmas dinner. It still raw at the end of the cooking time. We microwaved it piece by piece.
