I live in a rural area and work from home (medical transcription), which I love. I am married to my 2nd husband; we each have a grown son and 6 grandchildren between us. Enjoy most crafts; jewelry making, polymer clay, candle making, counted cross-stitch, as well as cooking. Have tried my hand at sewing and enjoy, but far from expert.
My favorite things to cook
Soups, casseroles, breads/rolls, grilling in the summer. Love to try new recipes. I am trying to learn more ways to use fresh ingredients for health and taste. Also exploring ways to use herbs and spices.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Homemade everything, although I'm not adverse to using some already made ingredients in a dish, as long as it tastes good! I love applesauce made from Granny Smith apples and served warm. Love to make soups and casseroles, anything that allows me to be a little bit creative.
