My favorite things to cook
Now, anything quick and easy especially proportioned for one person. Or else slow cooked in a crock pot with leftovers I can freeze. I like to bake quick breads and cookies.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother's simmered pork chops with onions, green pepper, and tomatoes; always a favorite with my family and friends.
My cooking triumphs
I make really good frosted pumpkin cookies and a variety of quick breads like zucchini, strawberry, and banana.
My cooking tragedies
When I was in high school my mom tried to teach me to cook. She had me put a pot of water on the stove in preparation to do something, I got engrossed in a book and burned the bottom out of the pot. She gave up. I finally learned to cook when I left home and needed to survive.
