I have 10 grandkids that I'm crazy about; hubby bought me my first motorcycle almost 4 years ago, and we ride with the Patriot Guard (Love it); I love learning new things and meeting new people. Don't tell me I can't or I'll show you that I can!
My favorite things to cook
spaghetti, lasagna, bread pudding, key lime cake,
My favorite family cooking traditions
my mom's mom's bread pudding, her homemade biscuits (I think I've found a workable substitute on here); letting my grandkids help me make things in the kitchen- there's no better way to get a kid interested in cooking, than letting them get their hands into things.
My cooking triumphs
The Key Lime Cake 3 on this site has really inspired me- it's awesome! I've never had a lot of success with cakes before this one.
I love making jams, jellies and preserved- my favorites are fig preserves and apple jelly.
My cooking tragedies
I tried for years to make homemade 'cat-head' biscuits like my grandmother used to make, but could never get knack- I've found a recipe on here that I think will work (Kentucky biscuits). Nothing better than homemade biscuits and fig preserves on a cold morning.
