I'm a professional woman with a family. I love to cook great meals for my family when I'm off. When I'm not off, I try to make meals that are quick, easy, and delicious.
My favorite things to cook
More than anything, I love to bake. I attribute this to watching my mother bake us wonderful treats when I was a young girl.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Definitely baking, although we're all really good cooks who make a variety of great food.
My cooking triumphs
I recently won a first-place blue ribbon for my peach pie and second-place for my blueberry pie at a local county fair. I make great cookies, too (fancy ones for weddings- - this is a tradition in Western Pennsylvania).
My cooking tragedies
Plenty. The very first meal I cooked for my husband as new bride was homemade spaghetti sauce that was so salty we could barely eat it. He was nice and ate it anyway without complaining.
