I love antiques and being creative with junk. I love cooking for a crowd. That's when I truely feel like I'm doing something great.
My favorite things to cook
I like cooking some of the good ole recipes from mothers 1976 walut iowa cook book. My Mom passed away when I was 11 but, I still like to feed my family some of my favorites that she used to cook.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We are not Italian but we make homemade spaghetti sauce and meatballs every x-mas. My Mother did this and all of my siblings and I still do. We get people trying to invite themselves to our Christmas dinner every year!
My cooking triumphs
I'm still waiting. I'd love to be able to made fabulous homemade bread but, having an electric stove, I have a hard time getting the yeast to rise.
My cooking tragedies
I occasionally make something for the first time that I'm not proud of and my darn husband always says "this is good" as he's drowning it in B-B-Q sauce!
