I am a housewife married 20 years with 3 grown children. I do beading,sewing and other crafts for relaxation and gifts. I have been cooking for over 40 years having started at my mothers' and grandmothers' sides as a child. fell in love with it and can't stop.
My favorite things to cook
Baklava, christmas goodies, Italian, Asian, Cajun (that what I geet for marrying a Cajun boy!)aand experimenting with all sorts of recipes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Big holiday dinners with as much of the family as I can gather!!! Homemade Bread Pies Cookies and of course Baklava. Giving homebaked goodies for holiday gifts,or just because it's an ordinaary day.
My cooking triumphs
Being asked to make something special for a friend, birthday cakes, or teaching my neices basic cooking skills when they were young.
My cooking tragedies
my first christmas that i was married to husband #1, i put cornish game hens in the crockpot, so we could have our own special holiday meal. unfortunatly i stuffed them, we had cornish game hens and sruffin soup! also as a teenager i doubled a cake recipe and instead of spice sponge cake. my family haas never let me forget it, and that was over 30 years ago.
