I am step-mom to 6, nana to an ever-expanding bunch of grandbabies.
My favorite things to cook
Love to cook things like lasagne, clam sauce for pasta, stroganoff, etc., though I don't get to do so often, as my better half is a plain meat and potatoes kind of guy.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My wonderful mother-in-law and I do Thanksgiving dinner together, and I love to have people compliment the stuffing and the gravy, my signature holiday dishes.
My cooking triumphs
My "black turkey" (beef jerkey, mispronounced by my then 4-year-old grandson, and the name has just stuck...). Every time I bring it out when we go camping there is jubilation.
My cooking tragedies
I once baked an angel food cake that was so rubbery our dog played with it in the yard for weeks before it finally disintegrated...
