My husband and I have been married 46 years. We have 3 children and 7 grand children . Cooking has been, and will continue to be, a learning experience. I subscribe to many food magazines, and that's my reading material. We have a lovely vegetable garden, which my husband cares for, beginning every early spring until frost and I am in charge of freezing or "putting up " the produce for the year.
My favorite things to cook
I love making jams from our fig tree and from our garden. I also enjoy making sweets for the gals at work. My favorite cuisine is Italian.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving! How we love the smell of the turkey roasting in the oven, and all the marvelous sides.
My cooking triumphs
So many! The first triumph was a 5 course Italian dinner 22 years ago, beginning with the first course of antipasti , a salad of sliced fresh tomatoes alternating with fresh mozzeralla and basil, fresh minestrone soup and homemade lasagna (noodles). It was wonderful.
My cooking tragedies
When Iwas first married, I made pork chops that we're so over done!
