I am a 69 year old Mother and Grandmother and Great Grandmother. I used to cook a lot, as I raised 5 children. I now have 18 grandchildren ranging in age from 10 to 30. And 4 Great grandchildren, with two more due this year. We always get together for the holidays, and there is a lot of cooking done then.
My favorite things to cook
I especially like to bake, but I like to try almost any new recipe.
My favorite family cooking traditions
For the holidays, we always have stuffed mushrooms. I am told this is a must, this is just our family tradition,and has been for 20 years or more. Then of course, we have Turkey, ham, and lots of goodies. We like to have lots of cookies, and fudge. I also make many of my potato coffee cakes to give as gifts. Every one loves them. My recipe for Old Fashioned Sugar Cream Pie is also a must, along with Pumpkin pie, and we also make some new varieties each year to try.
