I started cooking when I was very young out of necessity. Today my grown daughter thinks I have the answers to all that is food. She lives in Texas and calls me frequently with cooking questions. I love that we have bonded on this level.
My favorite things to cook
Mexican food, chicken dishes and homemade sauces.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making everything from scratch. One thing my mother was good at was cooking. and I love to see people enjoying my food.
My cooking triumphs
I was ecstatic to be able to feed my German born husband Schnitzel. Also homemade chicken pot pie. I even started trying homemade breads. Nothing smells as good as bread baking.
My cooking tragedies
Crock pot Beef Stroganoff. I don't really care for this But my husband is German and really loves this.
