Soon to be retired. After being a widow for nearly 10 yrs, met a wonderful man and we've been married
almost 3 yrs.
No children, no pets now. Love cats!
Short and as my mother used to say, "pleasingly plump"--all 150# of me.
My favorite things to cook
I love casseroles.
Cookies are my weakness and love to bake all kinds.
Hubby isn't a chocolate lover,it's so hard to make cookies without chocolate!!
Am a basics cook, but do love to experiment with new recipes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Mom and I baked lots of cookies for Christmas. I have continued the tradition. Still like to make the
rum balls from a recipe my best friends mother shared way back when we both were in high school.
My cooking triumphs
I do good if I can pull off a decent dinner for more than 4 people. Coming from a family of 3 and married and only the 2 of us,
it's always been hard to cook and plan for a group.
My cooking tragedies
Most recent when I dropped the beautiful, lattice topped home made cherry pie on the floor right out of the oven. I cried the rest of the afternoon! But we decided the
3 second rule applied and we scooped it up on a cookie sheet and ate most of it later!
