I am almost 60 years old. I have been a construction wife for over 35 years and can pinch a penny until it screams. Especially when in come to food.
My favorite things to cook
Baked goodies that I shouldn't eat. I like to experiment with cooking and end up with something like "Hamburger Surprise" or "Tuna Surprise"
My favorite family cooking traditions
cookies at Christmas. Pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving.
My cooking triumphs
When we had dairy goats, I made custard from their milk and won a first prize at our county fair.
My cooking tragedies
Rarely, those "surprizes" I whip up are not very good. Sometimes, my cooking is not pretty but tastes good and it doesn't make any diffrence to my family what it looks like.
