Karen Green aka ME!
About this Cook
I have a hubby and a cat and a home-based business. I love all three. Well, maybe not the cat on occassion. ha!
My favorite things to cook
I LOVE to cook and bake and entertain! But I don't think I would want to do the cooking and the baking as a job. I like to do it for fun! YOU would want to come to one of my parties. Trust me. We'd have a good time.
My favorite family cooking traditions
When I was growing up I lived with my grandmother. I loved watching and helping her cook. She used to hum or sing a little when she cooked. I find myself doing the same thing sometimes. I remember one Thanksgiving my grandma, mom and I were wearing our aprons and dancing in the kitchen when a fun song came on the radio.
My cooking triumphs
I make FUN cut-out cookies. I get requests for my slow-cooker recipes. AND I made salmon swans!
My cooking tragedies
My first thanksgiving meal that I made for my new in-laws was a disaster. I bought a fresh turkey on accident and let it thaw in the refrigerator. It was rotten when I opened up the package on Thanksgiving morning. So we shared a small ham that was given to my hubby from his work. Everybody got one slice and lots of mashed potatoes! Then later that day my pies caught on fire in the oven. I was SO EMBARRASSED!
