My favorite things to cook
I would say baking. I love making cakes, pies, bread, cookies.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love making Sunday Dinners so all the grown kids and grandchildren come over to eat. It makes me happy to see them all eat.
My cooking triumphs
Making my Grandmother's Fresh Apple cake for the County Fair and winning a blue ribbon, which I gave to her since it was her family recipe. But she refused it. She stated that I was the one who baked it so I should keep it. By the smile on her, she was proud.
My cooking tragedies
When I first got married and really didn't know how to cook, let alone boiling water. I was trying to please my new husband and I made spaghetti with a side of sauerkraut. Needless to say, he ate it without a complaint. The following day he came home from work with a box of cookbooks and that is how I learn how to cook.
