There are 11 grandchildren, my 2 sons, his 2 sons, and 3 daughters and their better halfs. Allen is not with us.He passed away in September of 2005. We still are cooking his favorites. The family does center around food even if we do not admit to it! I love guitar music and photography. I love all the grandchildren and all that they are doing with their lives. Pets are a big deal in my life too.
My favorite things to cook
I try to think healthy. I send emails with healthy recipes for dessert alternatives to the kids. Comfort food still is high on the list though.I love breakfast casseroles for when I spend the night with the grandkids.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love turkey for thanksgiving and everyone bring a dish. Sweet potato casserole is a must. You have to have Left over turkey to make "dishes" for several days.
My cooking triumphs
Creamed Chip Beef on Toast(honest)
Best Home Made Soups!
Pantry food (we HAVE to get by with a little help from our friends...)
My cooking tragedies
I can not make gravy...they think it is dumplings!
