I have been cooking all of my life. I enjoy it but I hate cleaning up. I like the sense of accomplishment it gives me when I finish and please everyone. One of my biggest accomplishments was cooking for my son's football team each week. What fun!!
My favorite things to cook
Gourmet pound cakes, any kind of dessert or cookie. I also love trying new recipes. I love to make homemade yeast rolls and cinnamon rolls. The smell of the kitchen makes me feel warm and cozy.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Getting together with my mom, two sisters, nieces and nephews before Christmas and baking all of our goodies to hand out as gifts.
My cooking triumphs
I had a little Gourmet Pound Cake Business out of my home. I could have really made it work but my family always comes first and it was too time consuming with working full time.
My cooking tragedies
When I was first married, my in-laws came over and I made boxed brownies and the middle was still runny and the sides were done. Of course my father-in-law never let me forget that.
