My favorite things to cook
I'm always intrigued by casseroles. I also find that chicken cooked in various ways seems to produce an excellent meal.
My cooking triumphs
My Xmas caramels. I've perfected them and I have people begging for more after the holidays. Most of the husbands don't know that these caramels exist. The ladies get quite possessive with these wonderful delights.
My cooking tragedies
When I was in high school trying to ehance my pie baking skills, I made a piecrust that I set on a window ledge to cool. Someone came along, bumped the pie pan and it fell to the ground. The glass pie pan broke in a million pieces, but the entire crust remained in one piece. My father, who was less than helpful, commented that I in all likelihood had perfected a new recipe for cement. I have come a long way since then.
