I'm an empty nester that loves cooking for my family when they come around!
My favorite things to cook
Family style meals - open fire cooking - entertaining foods.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Egg casserole on Christmas Morning...Everyone loves my Fresh Salsa in the summer .... and a big ole' pot of chili in the cast iron dutch oven over a slow burning fire at the end of the summer season when the nights start to chill.
My cooking triumphs
I love to entertain for large groups - 100+
I have always done all the cooking myself...
My cooking tragedies
When I married my first husband, one of my first cooking experiences was ham and beans.... I put a 5# bag of great northern beans in a single crock pot. I'm sure he still laughs about it. When he came home from work - every cup, bowl and container in the house was filled with beans.
