I am the mother of 3 sons who like to eat. So I had to learn to cook. I came from a large family that enjoys family get-togethers so there was always a lot of food around.
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy fixing holiday dinners for my family. I enjoy making pumpkin pies and 5 flavor cakes for Christmas and Thanksgiving, not to mention 2 large turkeys.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We always have Turkey and dressing, candied sweet potatoes, whipped cream salad, vegetables, cranberry orange relish, and pumpkin pie for our Thanksgiving and Christmas Dinner.
My cooking triumphs
5 Flavor Cake is my specialty. It makes great gifts too.
My cooking tragedies
So far I have been pretty lucky I have only had on near tragedy that was when I forgot to put the sugar in 1 of 15 pumpkin pies. Luckily my brother was the only one to get a piece of that pie and it was so funny it really wasn't a tragedy.
