I was reading the newspaper a couple of weeks ago and lo and behold there was an article about Fried Kool Aid. I thought , "Hmmm. What in the world is that?" I read further and discovered that they are serving Fried Kool Aid at fairs in California
and they seem to be quite a popular food. I am…
I work as a news reporter for a small paper. I love food and cooking. My favorite item to read besides the newspaper, are The Enquirer, the Bible, and cookbooks. I have four grown children and nine grandchildren. I am a musician and play keyboard with a couple of bands. This all keeps me very busy.
My favorite things to cook
Any kind of chicken recipe, hamburger, pasta,vegetables, casseroles. Especially like any kind of slow cooker recipes. I have started making Trail Mix and try to come up with different varieties.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I have always liked to cook. If I am upset or simply want to be by myself, I chase everyone out of the kitchen and begin creating. I like trying any new recipe from All Recipes and am a big fan of the Food Network. Faves are Paula Deen, Rachael Ray, Sandra Lee, and Ina Gartner.
My cooking triumphs
I have a simple tasty recipe for noodles. I have to make these for everything. They are a big hit and easy to make. My church, family, and friends ask me to bring these to every event. My crockpot dressing is out of this world, my Whistling Dixie chili and more.
My cooking tragedies
One time I made a cheese/beer soup. It was horrid. My whole house smelled like a bar. Another time I put navy beans in a pressure cooker and they blew up and hit the ceiling. Another time I lost a bracelet while making custard and someone found it as they were eating!
