Started cooking family meals at 10 years old. Family favorites: pinto beans, pan gravy and green beans.
2 other favorites: hamburger goulash and hamburger stew.
My favorite things to cook
Comfort foods, all types. I like to make something from nothing. Open the pantry/fridge and put together a meal from whatever I find.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Farm style home cooking. Everything from scratch. Lots of fresh veggies in the summer. Homemade chicken and noodles keeps sickness away.
My cooking triumphs
I ran a small restaurant in NV for a while. Great fun! I was free to add whatever I wanted to the menu for daily specials: stuffed cabbage rolls, chili verde, pot roast, and more...
My cooking tragedies
this year, first time ever: a horrible christmas turkey! I have never had one so bad. It would not cook! Ended up feeding most of it to our puppies.
