Love to cook, love to read, love to spend time talking about cooking/recipes, love to help others with simple healthy inexpensive meals from scratch!
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake with my grandkids. Making bread and cookies are my favorite, but pies and brownies are not far behind!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas Eve- Italian- manicotti, homemade spaghetti and meatballs, homemade lasagna! Christmas morning- homemade cinnamon rolls, Belgian waffles, homemade hash browns, "breakfast" fried rice. Fudge, mints, candies, etc.
My cooking triumphs
Learning to make bread from scratch.
Learning to make really good pie crust. Cooking simple healthy dishes for my family.
My cooking tragedies
pot roast with tarragon (what was I thinking?) yucky yucky!
Put too much yeast in bread, and then letting it rise too long.
