About this Cook
I am a mother with grandchildren and an empty nest. I currently live alone but am engaged to a wonderful guy. As for hobbies, I love photography (weddings, portraits and family shots) and editing photos on my computer. I also enjoy decorating and herb gardening.
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy cooking for the holidays but usually prefer "quick and easy" recipes when cooking for myself. My bread machine gets a workout though. I experiment with recipes since there are usually ingredients that do not appeal to me.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Traditional holiday cooking is something I look forward to. Some of my favorite recipes are pumpkin bread, no-bake oatmeal cookies, hot chocolate mix, fudge, old-fashioned cornbread turkey dressing and items I can make ahead, freeze and give as gifts during the holiday season.
My cooking triumphs
Pumpkin bread, no-bake oatmeal cookies and cornbread dressing seem to be favorites with my family. They also enjoy chocolate covered spoons (which I make during the holidays).
My cooking tragedies
DIVINITY !!! My mother makes wonderful divinity but mine NEVER becomes firm.
