I recently married for the first time at age 50 and instantly became a stepmom and stepgrandma! I am a stay at home foster mom to cats and kittens for the local animal shelter so my days can be busy, but very rewarding.
My favorite things to cook
Love to try new recipes and experimenting with my crockpot - which is a real timesaver. Recently tried a ham with beer and apple cider and it was fabulous.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother was an excellent cook but she passed away 10 years ago. I still make a lot of her favorite recipes, especially her rhubarb torte every summer. She made the best chicken kiev, salmon patties and gazpacho, unfortunately she cooked a lot from memory and didn't write down her recipes - I can get close but still not as good as hers.
My cooking tragedies
Can't think of any at the moment.
