I love to read recipes. Experimenting with food is always fun. But whatever I cook-I have to like all ingredients. My favorite little cookbook is Aunt Bee's Mayberry Cook Book.
My favorite things to cook
Love oven cooking.Brisket,roast,chicken. Sweets are always important. Pies,cookies,cakes with the buttercream frosting (butter&crisco).
My favorite family cooking traditions
As long as I could cook I remember staying up till the early morning hours on Chritmas and Thanksgiving. Chopping and baking.
My cooking triumphs
Baking a mile high meringue chocolate or coconut pie.
My cooking tragedies
Didn't like any of the ingredients in "gumbo". So I could'nt taste it. I have not lived that one down!
