I'm very independent yet look to my husband for approval and equality. We've been married now 43 years and it works for us. Maybe cause we had NO children, lol. But we are still in love and enjoy being with each other.
My favorite things to cook
I like good healthy yet hearty meals. Love to cook on holidays when a bunch of us get together and bring our best. Cooking for just two can get boring but I try and make sure we try 1 new dish a month. Keeps me on my toes for entertaining too.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother taught all of us to cook, bake, sew and be able to take care of ourselves. I was the lucky one, both my sisters just don't like cooking and baking, I love it and am lucky to have the ability to make things taste good.
My cooking triumphs
Entertaining people is always a triumph for me when they say they really enjoyed what I made and enjoyed the variety of it.
My cooking tragedies
First new year's cooking for friends and my oven broke down. What a disaster trying to get the turkey and ham done. Everyone was very nice about it and thank goodness we live in Florida and I was able to use the barbaque and grill but still I was totally frustrated and over exhausted to enjoy it.
