I'm 73, been cooking since I was about 10 or 11. I live in Tulsa, OK, semi-retired - because Social Security just doesn't provide enough income and share my home with my grandson and four cats.
My favorite things to cook
Just about anything that falls in the dessert category and crock pot meals.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making cookies, candy, cakes and breads for Christmas - i.e. divinity, banana bread, pumpkin bread, pineapple squares, half-way cookies, etc.
My cooking triumphs
The blue ribbon I won for my angel food cake at the OKC State Fair after my grandmother wouldn't let me help her when I was visiting the summer before I made the entry to the fair.
My cooking tragedies
The time I thought I was putting Wondra Flour in the mac and cheese and it turned out to be sugar. YUCK!!! I think that was the last time I bought Wondra flour.
