My favorite things to cook
I like to make homey, comforting food for my family. I like to make meatloaf, smothered pork chops,pot roast, homemade mashed potatoes, biscuits and gravy for breakfast. I'm from Southern California, but my cooking heart seems to have come from the South.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I make chicken and noodles over mashed potatoes, just like my Mom and Grandma made. I use frozen Grandma's egg noodles, they taste just like my Mom's homemade ones. Filling, but so good on a cold day.
I make rolled cut out sugar cookies at Christmas. We all decorate them with frosting, candies, and sprinkles. My son-in-law helped us for the first time last year and did a great job. I can't wait for the grandkids to help me like I helped my grandma.
My cooking triumphs
People seem to like my cooking. My husband says I have a knack for seasoning things well, and that I can make all different types of foods that people really like.
My cooking tragedies
I made a baked chicken with mango chutney, currey, and raisins. They HATED it. My husband wouldn't even eat it when I scraped the sauce off. He said it smelled.
