I'm single with five grandkids. It's wonderful being by the lake and fishing. Love to make quilts and wallhangings, which I give away. I hear & see the loons most every night together with the parade of about 15 baby ducks & their two mamas which seem to have banded together
My favorite things to cook
Love to cook desserts; pies,bars, etc I make a mean beef stroganoff that everyone loves.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Turkey with dressing and cranberries at Thanskgiving. Prune rolls on Easter morning and Ham dinner later
My cooking triumphs
I make great pie crusts. Especially with rhubarb and apples.
My cooking tragedies
The first thanksgiving after getting married, we had my family for dinner, about 17 of us. I prepared Turkey, dressing, cranberries, etc., and dished up everything and we all sat down to eat. My dressing was made from scratch and it included lots of giblets....I don't remember if the turkey was done but I do remember that the dressing was not. That never happened again.
