I was widowed when my daughter was four and raised my daughter on homemade, healthy meals. Now she's on her own and I cook simply for myself. But I still love to try new recipes for get-togethers with friends.
My favorite things to cook
Since I work, slow-cooker recipes are a favorite. Recipes that are simple and tasty get my attention. I make a great pie crust and I think it is easier (and tastier) than making cake.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Apple pie. I slit my top crush just like my mother taught me, the way my grandmother did.
