I am married, with 3 daughters (all married) and 7 grandchildren. I lost 75# in the last year and a half, thanks to HCG and real,whole foods. My husband and I are crop farmers and I have a custom design and alterations business.
My favorite things to cook
I love to eat real foods. Real food has life in it and is so good that you can taste the life in it. I make my own yogurt from whole milk, and bake our own 10-grain bread several times a week, and grow most of our fruits and vegetables. I enjoy cooking up everything.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I cook from scratch and seldom use convenience products. I read labels religiously and buy the product with the least amount of ingredients listed on the label. My cooking goals are always to get the most nutrition possible from every dish I prepare, and great taste with the least amount of added sugar.
My cooking triumphs
We really love our recipe for 10-grain bread and so do our grandchildren who are always asking for peanut butter chocolate chip sandwiches made with our bread. Also we make our smoothies with our homemade yogurt and whole fresh or frozen fruits--no pasturised juices--for maximum nutrition. A whole large orange usually provides the juiciness a smoothie requires. Yum!
My cooking tragedies
Not too many of those, thank goodness. Shoofly pie was our biggest disappointment.
