My mother was a single mom and worked a lot. I had two younger brothers and we didn't like waiting for dinner so we all became pretty good cooks in our own way. I do wish that I would have learned more from my Grandmother before she died.
My favorite things to cook
Lately I have been trying to cook healthy food. I've even gotten into baking my own bread and cookies. I figure if there is some good healthy stuff around I won't eat the junk. I love to fill up the smoker. MM MM MM it makes the best meat for sandwiches.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Sunday dinners. Holdiays are a pain. I'll make the turkey and/or a side dish but I'm not doing the whole thing again!
My cooking triumphs
Green Chili, smoked turkey, lasagna, whole wheat bread, KITTY LITTER CAKE?, and muffins.
My cooking tragedies
Only use the microwave if you've been drinking. LOL I learned that when I was younger. I've learned from my mistakes.
