I have been married to my husband since 1988. We have 3 children and 3 grandchildren, I love to travel, where I learn about foods of different cultures. We have a very large garden That we eat from most of the year. Eat fresh in the summer and canned and frozen garden treats in the colder months. I love to create new foods with a twist, and all my friends and family love to eat my creations.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook anything that comes from my garden. Being creative with this food is the most fun.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My favorite family tradition is making the almond butter cookies my husbands grandmother used to make for him. When He told me of these fabulous cookies his grandmother made for him I asked his mother for the recipe. She did not know all the measurements but she knew the ingredients. It took me a few tries but I nailed it and we enjoy these delicious cookies often at family gatherings.
My cooking triumphs
I guess the best way to tell you this is my children and their friends love my food, actually what it's called is "Sheila Food", now that some of my kids have families of their own and some in college we have "Sheila Food" parties, where I just cook. Another triumph is my picky grandsons love eating at Grandmas. Personally, my husband and I rarely go out to eat, we do have a couple of favorite restaurants, one is 30 minutes away and the other 2 hours away, I just like my cooking.
