I just retired from the Army after 24 years. I enjoy cooking when I get the chance - now that I'm retired I get more time to cook. I enjoy trying new recipes.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook just about anything but my kids love one of my buttermilk chicken recipes that I use. It can get messy but its fun.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I started a new one at Christmas. My daughter and I made a homemade apple pie. I also make Christmas cookies with both my kids.
My cooking triumphs
When my husband and I first got married, we created this wonderful dish. We didn't know it would be terrific at the time - but even to this day we still make it and have passed it on to our friends. Its a stuffed chicken breast with lemon sauce. It's stuffed with onions, mushrooms and garlic sauteed in butter. Then added to white rice and spinach. Yummmm.
My cooking tragedies
I remember as a kid making cookies. I mixed up Baking Powder and Baking Soda. Needless to say - My cookies didn't turn out. But I learned a valuable lesson - to always check what I'm using.
