I am Mom to two grown kids. They were homeschooled until they were in the 6th and 7th grades, then I went back to school and became a nurse. I work in the ER of a hospital here in town, and love it!
My favorite things to cook
Vegetarian meatballs, meatloaves, patties, spreads, and sandwich fillings made with nuts, cheese and vegetarian meat substitutes in place of the meat.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Vegetarian cooking, great desserts, wonderful salads, and fresh from the garden vegetables.
My cooking triumphs
A family cookbook, compiled and shared with my family one year for Christmas. Many entries included in church sponsored cookbooks. The Vegetarian Tasting Extravaganza in my current church has been a yearly pleasure-40-50 recipes are made and sampled by 300+ paying customers, tasting the foods is fun, making the recipes at home, from the available cookbook is even more fun, because then you get a full serving of your favorites!
My cooking tragedies
I try to convert many meat recipes to vegetarian ones by substituting vegetarian products for the meat. Sometimes it works, a lot of times it doesn't. I have learned not to use a new recipe to feed visitors until we have tried it at home.
