I love to cook and food allergies mean I cook like our grandparents did-with basic raw ingredients. No cans of soup or mixes. Especially love to cook/bake using fresh or frozen ingredients grown in my own back yard.
My favorite things to cook
Christmas cookies and candy. I spend every spare minute between Thanksgiving and Christmas filling my freezer with thousands of cookies and candy fillings-then dip, dip, dip the candies the last couple days. My family and friends all get tins filled with homemade treats.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Huge thanksgiving dinner-we rent a campground and fix dinner for 60-70 family members in the large kitchen.
