My favorite things to cook
Easy meatloaf, veg soup, rice & tuna, baked chicken, various potatoes & any dessert under the sun.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My grandmother was a professional cake maker, primarily for weddings, so food has a long, fabulous tradition in my family. When she passed away, she left her KA stand mixer to my sister. I started out in the kitchen as a little tike, helping Mom bake cookies. I can't imagine not being in a kitchen.
My cooking triumphs
My biggest truimph was winning the best cake at my nephew's school. They have an annual cake auction and mine won by a vote of 38 out of 42. There were 5 cakes in the finals.
My cooking tragedies
The time I made cheese fudge in July. I didn't take into account the humidity . . . The good news is that we put it over ice cream and have discovered an excellent new dessert topping.
