Married now 26 1/2 years.(Had to ask my honey he keeps track of that I'm too busy) Our Son is 25 and finally on his own again. And I have 3 stepchildren all adults on their own. We live in Ramona, Ca for 19 years in the same house. Love my Pugs and gardening the sunshine, and my pool.
My favorite things to cook
Love making soups,and one pot dinners, pasta dishes, casseroles, cakes, cookies. I'm no good at pies. Hubby is though, so that takes care of that.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Hubby makes pumpkin pies, cherry, and apple for Thanksgiving, and in a coon's age for Christmas. We do love to BBQ, and entertain guests, around the pool.
My cooking triumphs
My cooking triumphs, is when all is ready and hot at the same time for a large crowd....WHEW....
My cooking tragedies
I decided to make 100% whole wheat bread from wheat grains I had aquired. I put them in the blender to make a flour. Well Sort of flour....Made the fresh bread dinner rolls, and it sure made the kitchen smell wonderful. We were all around the table waiting for the rolls to cool to eat. I served them up and boy was I proud. UNTIL....we tried to put a knife through them to cut them for adding butter and jelly. Holy Moly the knives would not even make a dent in the rolls. We took them outside and threw them on the concrete, and they barely dented or cracked. Never attempted to make that again...ever !!!! My husband years later bought me a wonderful bread machine. I have made over 100 loaves of bread in that machine, various breads.But I can't make it the old fashioned way. Never got the knack.
