Grandma of 16, great-grandma of 2, love to cook for family & try new things, not fancy, just good.
My favorite things to cook
Mexican, Chinese. I make killer fried chicken and scalloped potatoes. My mom's recipe for lemon meringue pie. Pumpkin chiffon pie. Zucchini bread (from my Amish cookbook).
My favorite family cooking traditions
Green chili burros, pit roasted meats (MMM!), fried okra, fresh homegrown vegetables.
My cooking triumphs
My cooking tragedies
I have invented some really awful casseroles. Fortunately, my kids like Taco Bell.
