I am a retired disabled OR nurse. I worked for 17 yrs at my local hospital & miss my job very much. But now I have my Princess Hayley granddaughter to fill my time. Due to my disability--MS--I am limited in what I can do, but I love to cook & share my recipes w/ all my friends. I also belong to a local Lunch Bunch group & we cook & try out all our recipes for our club. I helped start it over 30 yrs ago & we are still going strong!
My favorite things to cook
Italian, Mexican & I love to bake & try new recipes all the time
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas cookies, Thanksgiving recipes w/ all the family around my dining room, & Christmas dinner w/ everyone.
My cooking triumphs
I won a contest for a recipe I made for the Splenda website using their new Splenda brown sugar & won a Kitchen Aid stand mixer!!
Recipe---Sweet Sesame Chicken & it is still posted on the site!
My cooking tragedies
One Thanksgiving my oven broke & I had to feed 13 people. The turkey stayed frozen & I had to get a pre packaged meal at the grocery store. Not really MY DISASTER, as I had no control over the oven breaking down. But I got a brand new oven, that I loved at the time--it was 30 yrs ago.
