I'm happily married for 20 years to my best friend. We have two kids 14 & 19, a dog and some cats. I love to garden and bake. I'm big on throwing things together for quick recipes. My best food never has a recipe that I can remember the amounts of, I sorta just make it up as I go.
My favorite things to cook
lately pie - only b/c now i have the hang of making a homemade crust.
guess you could say casseroles are my favorite and of course cookies.
anything with chocolate and / or peanut butter too!
My favorite family cooking traditions
well i learned how to make nestles toll house when i was 13ish. the rest i learned from watching my mother-in law and aunt cook and bake. i try to cook all the major holidays traditions, like corned beef & cabbage for St. Patrick's day and like that.....
My cooking triumphs
the pie crust and also flour tortilla- which are great for breakfast wraps
My cooking tragedies
once i tried to make an indian stew in my crock pot. it had turkey in it and cocoa powder and all i can remember is my family didn't like the way it looked or tasted and we actually fed it to the poor dog, lol
