I’ve been married for 27 years to a great man. I have two wonderful children, one daughter and a son; both of them are my pride and joy. I worked in a mill for 21 years until I lost my job because the mill closed down. Went back to school at 42 and got my associates degree in Applied Electronics and Computer Technology and currently work for the city in Information Technology. When life gave me lemons, I sweetened it up. Made lemon cake and took a big bite!
My favorite things to cook
I’m a diabetic but I love baking. I don’t do as much of it as I would like so when I do, it’s usually something very rich, flavorful and most times chocolate. Also, I’m always on the lookout for that great low carb desert that will satisfy my sweet tooth and keep my sugar levels from skyrocketing.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My favorite family cooking traditions was making Tortiere pies and Dynamite sauce with my mother for family gatherings on New Years.
My cooking triumphs
When I first got married, I was not a very good cook. Most things were either out of a bag, box or frozen. I have to say that my cooking triumphs are learning how to cook using fresh fruits, vegetables and spices. I love to experiment with my own combination of things and unless I make something that is 100% perfect, I usually try to tweak it a little different the next time I make it. Keeps the family on their toes when eating because they never know what I’ve changed.
My cooking tragedies
Two things I can not make are fudge and biscuits. I have been trying for years and I just can’t get it right. I’m not giving up though. I keep looking for that perfect recipe and one of these days I’ll find it.
