I come from very large family. My mother had ten children, so there was a lot of meals prepared in my home. All foods were made from scratch, the bread, cakes, pies, cookies you name. I love cooking because it gives me so much satisfaction when people eat and enjoy the meals I prepare for them.
My favorite things to cook
I love baking cakes, cookies and pies. I love cooking with the slow cooker and experimenting with all sorts of beef and turkey recipes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every year during the summer we have a crab feast in our backyards, we steamed the crabs right in our backyards. We have been doing this for over 70 years. The menu is usually Maryland steamed blue crabs, corn on the cobs and all sorts of vegetables. Fried chicken, pulled porked. all sorts of deserts just to name a few items. It is a tradition that I could not do without.
