My favorite things to cook
Pizza, soups and salads. I try to keep it healthy, but don't always succeed!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every year, our church ladies get together and bake cookies for our shut-ins (those who are older or disabled and can't always get to church). It's a whole day of doing what I love!
My cooking triumphs
I cooked an entire diabetic-friendly Christmas feast for my husband's co-workers, since one was diabetic. It was really tasty and no one knew how healthy it really was. Too bad that particular co-worker didn't show up!
My cooking tragedies
I decided one Christmas to make a stuffed pork loin for dinner. We were having company over and wanted something impressive. I had done one the year before for another dinner and tried the same thing. Unfortunately, I was out of kitchen twine and could only find black yarn. I figured that would work. When the roast came out of the oven it had this terrible blue ink all over it from the yarn. It was so gross I couldn't show it to my guests. We had to improvise for the main dish!
