I was a farm wife for 30 years, so I'm no stranger to the kitchen. I love to cook and I love to watch people enjoy my cooking.
My favorite things to cook
I love hearty home cooking with beef, pork and chicken. I have a few gourmet dishes and I like to fix Italian and Mexican food.
My favorite family cooking traditions
On the farm, our big meal was at noon and it was quite an event. Evening meals were usually smaller and lighter.
My cooking triumphs
The best cooking triumph is being told how much someone enjoyed a meal you fixed them years before.
My cooking tragedies
Can't think of anything in particular although, of course, there were some failures. Thankfully, the successes far outnumber the flops.
