About Me
Married and mother
My favorite things to cook
New England style food--vegetarian baked beans and brown bread. For Christmas, we need Kringla, and rosemary fudge. Valentine's Day isn't the same without cinnamon hearts, clove hearts, and peppermint hearts (these are all cream cheese mints). For Thanksgiving we use my great grandmother's plum pudding recipe to make figgy pudding.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Between Thanksgiving and Christmas, for each batch of cookies that are baked, 1/2 dozen go into the freezer. On Christmas, we assemble all the 1/2 dozens on a platter. It's a wonderful variety! The kids want 2 dozen of each kind of candy saved!
My cooking triumphs
New recipes! We've (the family) all won at state fairs. We love to come up with new ideas, then experiment!
My cooking tragedies
When I was called to the hospital because of a family emergency, I forgot to turn off the stove while cooking chicken. I returned home to a house that smelled awful! That was just a little while before overnight guests arrived! Another time, when I was canning sweet pickles, I had 7 quarts of hot sticky pickles in glass jars come crashing to the floor. Talk about a mess!
