I'm a full-time bookkeeper. Married to the same guy for 18 yrs. We have 6 children between the 2 of us and 7 grandchildren. Anytime but winter you can most likely find me in the garden. I raise both veggies & flowers, and I just started canning last year. I love to do genealogy, but it's too addictive!
My favorite things to cook
Italian and good ole' Southern cuisine
My favorite family cooking traditions
Corn pudding at Thanksgiving & Christmas. My husband fixes killer deviled eggs and potato salad. I have a fourth generation Christmas cookie recipe from Germany that my girls and I make every year-cut-out cookies that we decorate.
My cooking triumphs
Meatloaf, beef hash, meat pie,spaghetti & meatballs,corn pudding, spinach lasagna, fried green tomatoes, beef tenderloin, pork tenderloin on the grill, twice baked potatoes, all kinds of cookies.
My cooking tragedies
Popovers-never could make them.
Deep-fried salmon patties-all fell apart in the grease.
Pie crust-I'll leave it at that
Tried to fix navy beans in the crock pot.
Chocolate Mayonnaise Cake-I think my ex-mother-in-law intentionally left something out of the recipe! My husband wouldn't even give it to the dog!
