I sometimes enjoy cooking, sometimes its a chore. Its fun to use my imagination and make something of ingredients on hand.
My favorite things to cook
Recipes my family and my husband's family members have used for years that were always delicious.
Grandma's cookies and butters. Mom's cookies and pumpkin bread. Mother-in-law's pound cakes and candy. Homemade jams, jellies, pickles, relishes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving; turkey, potatoes, stuffing-not dressing, gravy.
My cooking triumphs
I'm a lucky cook on good days.
My cooking tragedies
There are days that I don't have any business in the kitchen and they usually start with an accident or a disaster and end with something scorched or burned.
