I enjoy collecting cookbooks, and have an extensive collection (mostly used for inspiration). I also love photography and painting, and also enjoy gardening, reading, knitting/crocheting, and am a total movie nut! :)
My favorite things to cook
Love to cook a variety of things, love baking...but, my favorite thing is soup...I LOVE making all kinds of soup!
My favorite family cooking traditions
THANKSGIVING...love all the typical traditional recipes, and enjoy adding a surprise every now and then.
My cooking triumphs
My triumphs are those which bring big smiles around the dining table. When I see that, I know my efforts are all worthwhile!
My cooking tragedies
As a new bride...my first attempt at making simple chicken soup was a fiasco...I assumed the more water you add, the more soup you get...never thinking I would need more chicken, too. DUH! Well, as you can guess, we had water not soup! This may be the underlying reason I love to make all types of soup. I guess I was determined to master that area! LOL
