I love to read cookbooks and try new recipes. I make guinea pigs of my friends sometimes. Most of the time they love what I have chosen to make for them. I can usually look at a recipe and know that it is going to be great.
My favorite things to cook
Something that has lots of spices, like Mexican, Thai, Chinese.
My favorite family cooking traditions
A must is a Macaroni Casserole for my grandkids. I make a cheesecake that my Grandson loves so I try to make it for him at least twice a week, he's in an out of town College.
My cooking triumphs
I just tried a great recipe for French Toast Casserole, was a hit.
