My favorite things to cook
I love to cook for my husband because when I ask him if he likes his dinner his whole face lights up in appreciation! "Oh, yes!" is his usual answer.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I always loved watching my mom make homemade noodles. I've never tried making them myself, but I'm thinking of doing it for the first time on Thanksgiving. I dictated my mother's recipe some years ago, and the most memorable measurement is the 4 half egg shells of milk.
People in southern Illinois cook noodles in broth and serve them over mashed potatoes. Yum! Comfort food.
My cooking triumphs
Making chocolate ganache makes me feel like a hero!
My cooking tragedies
Oh, there was the sad day when I filled all the cornbread pans & muffin tins twice as full as they should have been. Was that a nightmare?!! No, it really happened. Here's to disassociating!
