I learned to cook from a Better Homes and Gardens cookbook over sixty years ago. I cooked for my working mother when I was on vacation from college, so I already knew how to cook when I married.
My favorite things to cook
I love to try new recipes. My favorite things are those that can be used for another meal, since I cook for only myself and my husband now, after having cooked for a family of eight.
My favorite family cooking traditions
None that I'm aware of.
My cooking triumphs
Being able to feed a large family healthy meals on a teacher's salary.
My cooking tragedies
Spilling my first fresh apple pie all over the floor when I was a new bride trying to impress my husband.
