My favorite things to cook
I love to cook about anything, but what I seem to be the greatest at is desserts and appetizers. I love to cook for other people, especially my family.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Definitely Christmas desserts. I make cookie tins filled with "goodies" for my neighbors and my family. I do also bake for just about every other holiday and it is either desserts or appetizers.
My cooking triumphs
Holiday desserts: chocolate chip cookies, buckeyes, etc.. Homemade breads, banana, white bread, etc...
I also am a big fan of making new appetizers!! I make my huge family the "taste testers" to see if they are keepers or not.
My cooking tragedies
Homemade biscuits, Fried chicken.
