I'm a mom with two grown kids. I love to cook for them and they love to eat what I make! My son's favorite is pineapple upside down cake from scratch and my daughter is partial to cheesecake and coconut shrimp. My husband will eat most anything I put in front him. I like to be creative and stray from the recipes.
My favorite things to cook
Anything that is challenging.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Big breakfasts on Christmas morning.
My cooking triumphs
I am famous for my cheesecakes. I seem to have a knack for baking up a storm!!! I only bake from scratch. I taught myself how to can when I was in my early twenties and my kids grew up on homemade applesauce and canned tomatoes for soups and chili. I still love to can when I have time.
My cooking tragedies
Ham in the crockpot about 30 years ago. I'll never live that one down!
