Work fulltime so I like using crockpot during the week. Have three grandchildren that I like to cook for and would like to teach to cook someday.
My favorite things to cook
Soups, casseroles, pasta and salads. I am trying to find a few good salad dressings to make rather than buying them and having half a fridge full of them!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother is a great cook and also taught me to can food.
My cooking triumphs
Anything that I make with my canned tomatoes...chili, marinara sauce, porcupine meatballs etc.
My cooking tragedies
I made a chicken broccoli casserole once that had all ingredients that we liked but it was so bad we had to go out to eat!
