About Me
My favorite things to cook
Anything that my family enjoys!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making Christmas cookies every year since the grown men were babies... now with family far away I package them in celephane bags and mail them off. For Thanksgiving the men cook the turkey and dressing and the women make the side dishes. Every July we have lots of salads with burgers, brats and steaks no matter how far away family may be or how few can actually come the same food is always ready and waiting... just in case
