I'm not a fussy cook, i.e., I'm not Martha Stewart! I like good food that is easy to make. I cook almost everything from scratch, but it's got to be EASY EASY EASY. I would call myself an "unrated" cook. Sometimes it's fit to eat and sometimes it's not. I hate to waste food, so we usually eat it anyway.
My favorite things to cook
Breads, rolls, buns, cookies
My favorite family cooking traditions
Springerlies and cut-out cookies at Christmas time! My mom always made springerlies and I'm now the one to make them and send them to my family. My husband's big family tradition is cut-out sugar cookies.
My cooking tragedies
When we were first married, I made a Mexican corn bread that was so bad the stray cats wouldn't eat it. Now, that's bad!
