I love to cook, bake, and entertain. When I have a dinner party or family gathering, I love to plan the menu and decorations in advance; it's fun for me! My Mom was a great cook... nothing fancy, just basic and simple good cooking. Hubby cooks very little, but he does man a great BBQ!
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy baking cookies, cakes and pies; I also love trying new recipes on the family.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We love the traditional turkey dinner at Thanksgiving and Christmas, using my late mother's dressing recipe. Every Christmas morning, we have Pillsbury Cinnamon rolls! (I know, I know... I should make them from scratch from a recipe here!! LOL!)
My cooking triumphs
My greatest joy in the kitchen is giving thanks to The Lord for His provision, and making something delicious out of what I have to work with. When my family thanks me with a kiss on the cheek, I know dinner was yummy. This site has provided a lot of good recipes, and been the reason for some of those kisses. *smile*
My cooking tragedies
The first year my husband and I were together I made a turkey dinner using a 'utility grade' turkey... man, I think that thing had 3 drumsticks. It was nuclear waste! But he ate it, bless him.
