My favorite things to cook
cookies, brownies, pies from scratch, strawberry shortcake & any other desserts
My favorite family cooking traditions
Used to be making pies with my Grandma, but now that she has passed away I make them every Thanksgiving and Christmas with my sisters and husband. My daughter likes to help too.
My whole family uses a lot of my Grandma's recipes (not always healthy for you, but VERY good comfort food).
My cooking triumphs
Chocolate chip cookies. I make some awesome ones.
My cooking tragedies
My first meatloaf I made. I didn't have celery and used celery seed instead.. and way too much! Yuck! Went straight to the trash. And it was so aggrevating cause it takes so long to bake. I learned next time to leave the celery out. I think it tastes better without it anyway. And now my meatloaf tastes pretty good.
