I was born and raised in Iowa so I know all about that good home cooked country food. I am now serving in the military and have people from all over the world, introducing me to new favorites.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite thing to cook by far would have to be my Great Grandmothers baked macaroni and cheese. I can remember as far back as I can always helping her make this. I really like things that don't take long to prepare but are delicious for those days when I just have too much going on.
My favorite family cooking traditions
There was always a lamb cake for a children’s birthday, homemade ice cream at every camping trip. When the family was all together having dinner around the table was important.
My cooking tragedies
A couple years ago I found this recipe for easy fudge. On the recipe though it did not have sugar listed and I noted that to self. I made it twice with no sugar and once remembering the sugar but it was too late and nothing but grainy chocolate. That recipe is no longer in my collection.
