I live on a farm/ranch on the east side of the Rocky Mountains about 60 miles from the Canadian border. I moved here with my parents in 1946. When I married we stayed on the farm. My husband worked for my dad, then ran the place himself, and now our son is running it. We had 2 kids. I have done everything you can do on a farm but am now retired from everything except bookkeeping. I am an artist. My website is artbypatshephard.com. I like to paint the hills and mountains, the wildflowers, my antiques and anything else that strikes my fancy.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook for my guy. And he likes everything which makes it even more fun. Favorites?? Whatever I am making at the time is my favorite. I guess I do have a few favorite recipes. I have one each for sweet rolls, pecan pie, salad, spagetti, and lasagna. Everything else is usually done with a new recipe or I experiment with an old one.
My favorite family cooking traditions
The only constant traditions are pecan pie for all holidays, and My special Tom & Jerry mix on Christmas Eve.
My cooking triumphs
Every meal is a triumph if it makes your loved ones smile.
My cooking tragedies
I have had no tragedies, but I have had many learning experiences. :-)
