I am 62 years old. I love food and cooking. I am not heavy although I used to be and now I have learned how to eat properly
My favorite things to cook
I like to experiment with foods so I don't have a speciality. I have been a cake decorator, a chef, a caterer and most of all a wife and mother.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family and I have a tradition with my mother, who is not with us now, to bake carrot cakes for the whole family and give them as Christmas gifts.
My cooking triumphs
Too many to count. I get what is in the refrigerator and put it together and it comes out a pretty good what ever. My family can't do it but I have always been able to.
My cooking tragedies
I made dinner for my new husband 42 years ago and for the first time I didn't taste anything. When we sat down to dinner and my lemon merangue pie didn't look quite right I was disappointed. But after the first taste watching my husband first was a real shocker. You see my friends (?) had switched the salt and sugar and ripped all the labels off the cans. To say the least it is memorable.
