My family comes first in all I do. If they are happy, I'm happy. I love spending time w/ them. We like to camp, ride 4 wheelers, hunt & fish as a family.
My favorite things to cook
My family loves homestyle comfort food-midwest style. Beef, potatoes, veggies, stuff of that nature. I've been working on making the things they like more healthy w/o sacrificing flavor. I love baking bread, making BBQ meatballs, roast, chocolate cobbler & chicken & noodles.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We love Thanksgiving and Christmas traditional meals. Turkey and ham w/ all the trimmings. Cooking and baking for a large crowd always makes me happy.
My cooking triumphs
Spending several years perfecting from scratch BBQ sauce & bread...finally found the "perfect recipes."
Making good hearty meals to take to the fields for the farming men, not settling for sandwiches.
My cooking tragedies
Many times when I make recipes "by the book" my family turns up their noses. They prefer to have them tweaked to their tastes a bit. I've had a few epic tragedies that resulted in an unexpected night out for supper :)
