I'm proud to say that I'm a retired military wife of a man who shows his love for me every day. I have two wonderful children and a spitfire grandson. I do have health issues that make menu planning and creating recipes a challenge at times but we adapt and overcome.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook from memory for my adult children when they ask for their teenage favorites. I enjoy cooking recipes I was taught by other military wives from different cultures. My absolute favorite is making a recipe that has a history behind it and being told it tastes just right.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My favorite cooking tradition is baking my love's birthday lemon meringue pie.
My cooking triumphs
Not having the smoke detector tell me that dinner is ready.
My cooking tragedies
Garlic bread that became charcoal briquettes as we ladies laughed and drank red wine in the kitchen during a family get together. The men actually came in to see what was causing all the smoke!
