I've been married 33 years. I have 3 children and 3 grandchildren. I love rummage sales and going antiquing. I am a college student and I'm hoping to get a job when I'm done. I love walking. I take pride in my cooking, I think it is an art.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook soups, roasts, spaghetti, chilli. I like to make my own pie crust and homemade pies. I love cooking from scratch. I'm always willing to try new recipes and learn new things.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We always make sugar cookies at Christmas time. I love to make my own stuffing for Thanksgiving the way my Swedish grandfather passed down.
My cooking triumphs
Learning to cook period. When I married 33 years ago I was a tomboy and didn't know how to cook at all. I had to dig in and learn!
My cooking tragedies
The only thing that I remember that may have been a little tragic, was the first pot roast I made. I called my mother and asked her how to make it. She told me to put some water with the roast and put it in the oven and bake it. Well, needless to say, I drowned the roast with water and it sucked the flavor out of the roast and it was terrible. So, I quickly learned my lesson on that one.
