I'm 28 years old, and I was taught to cook by my grandmother. There is nothing better then standing next to her in her kitchen smelling and tasting everything she makes from scratch. Now that I have my own family, I enjoy making dishes and treats for them. My greatest helper is my 4 year old son, who now stands at my side smelling and tasting. :)
My favorite things to cook
I LOVE to bake any dessert! Currently, I'm trying my hand at healthier main dishes, and sides.
My FAVORITE thing to make, is my Mystery Pecan Pie at any holiday meal.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every Easter, Thanksgiving, and, especially, Christmas dinner I go to my grandmothers very early in the morning to help start all the sides and desserts. But the best part of this tradition is the way her house smells like her turkey and dressing. She always starts it around 4am, and by 8, the entire three story house is smelling amazing!
My cooking triumphs
Casseroles! Love them! Can't go wrong with an oven baked dish.
My cooking tragedies
Pie Crusts! I BURN THEM Almost Every Single Time! Wrap them in foil, or pull them early, mostly doesn't matter. I burn them up!
