I love my cookbooks. I read them cover-to-cover. At one point in my life I could tell you which book had which recipe...but I'm way past that now. I know you can find anything and everything online but I still need my books!!
My favorite things to cook
Dessert...my friends are my testers. Love my crock pot because I love my free time. Soups and salads - easy and creative. I love cooking for my family - they are so easy to cook for and appreciative!!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making Mom's Baked Macaroni. It took me years to find out that she lined the bowl with cheese. Cooking with my nieces -- our Fall tradition!
My cooking triumphs
Finally being at ease cooking a great Thanksgiving dinner for however many people. It used to intimidate me...but no longer. Bring it on!
My cooking tragedies
My husband used to think he was doing me a favor by counting my tragedies over the years. He felt he was saying...well in all these years she's only messed up __ times. I finally got him to stop; because either he stopped or I stopped cooking! He is my biggest fan, though.
