Starting cooking and baking in my early 20's. Holidays are my favorite.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake breads. I have for years made a traditional cinnamon yeast bread cut into a spiral and frosted. It's a favorite with family and friends. One year I made 12 at Christmas!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving and Christmas are favorites. Christmas sugar cookies and yeast breads.
My cooking triumphs
In the 1980's I won a cooking contest preparing a Broccoli and raisin salad with a sweet dressing. Very proud of that accomplishment!
My cooking tragedies
Strawberry jello salad that never jelled. I was so embarrassed. It was runny and I ended up bringing it to my party anyway...LOL
