I love to cook and have been married for 47 years. Now in retirement, I like to try new recipes but prefer those without a ton of ingredients. I prefer to substitute and experiment with what I have on hand, using a recipe as a guide.
My favorite things to cook
Soups, stews, casseroles are favorites. I enjoy cooking Italian and Mexican dishes. I also love to bake breads, quick breads, muffins, cakes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
The only traditional thing I make at this point is Butter Crunch Toffee at Christmas. I send it to all four adult children and their families, as well as give it as small gifts to neighbors and friends.
