It seems like I spend half my life cooking.. for holidays, for hunters/fishermen, for grandchildren... forever! I don't think I enjoyed it at first, but it's grown on me, especially, now that I'm older and can take my time and enjoy it more. I also have a website for internet sales that keeps me busy, at www.dilynnstuff.com It's a cyber yardsale and I'm always adding things to it.
My favorite things to cook
I like cooking desserts the most.. cookies, pies, cakes and sweet breads. That's also what gets eaten the most around my kitchen!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My all time favorite cooking traditions are over the holidays. I make all the traditional meals. At Christmas, for as far back as I can remember as a child, my mother and grandmother made iced Christmas cookies around the table. That tradition is still going strong with my children and grandchildren.
My cooking triumphs
Hmmm.. I'll have to think on that.
My cooking tragedies
Bread. I can make sweet breads, pizza dough and dinner rolls.. but can NOT make a good loaf of plain old bread.. wheat, white, rye or otherwise!
