I am 50 yrs old, have been disabled since 2003 with peripheral neuropathy. Cooking, while still a love of mine, is much more challenging. Many days pain keeps me from cooking at all. I am now limited to most recipes that mainly cook in oven, slow cooker or anything that really doesn't involve standing watching at stove. When I got sick, I had to teach my sons how to cook. They were 15yrs old and 10 yrs old at that time. All the teaching had to be from a sitting position as it took years to be able to stand any length of time. They now know how to cook, clean (maybe not as good as a woman but getting there), iron and wash clothes. They have surpassed their classmates in home abilities as they also help their dad. My husband,before I got sick,worried me some on how he would do in a serious situation always having been somewhat self centered. He not only came through with flying colors, he far surpassed that. He has been my rock, my anchor through it all.
I spent 27yrs as a nurse and miss
My favorite things to cook
appetizers..esp stuffed mushrooms
My favorite family cooking traditions
We don't really have any "traditions" other than the set menus for holidays but even those aren't anything out of the ordinary from others.
My sons beg often for chicken dorito cassarole though.
We all love anything cooked on a charcoal grill. I don't care what they say, nothing beats that taste.
My cooking triumphs
I can bake just about anything as long as I have a recipe
My cooking tragedies
I can't make a bisquit to save my soul..and I live in the south lol.
