I'm a mom of 6. All are grown except the youngest who is almost 17. They all still call or come see Mom to find out how to make this or that. I love down home cooking and Italian fare.
My favorite things to cook
Potato and pasta dishes are my favorites. I also love dishes that contain cheese... and lots of it!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I like having people with me when I cook, not just for the help, but for the company.
My cooking tragedies
Oh... um, the day that I was making chili from scratch (complete with starting from dried kidney beans) and I got the "cumin" out of the dark pantry... and without looking started adding it... I was horrified when I caught a whiff of cinnamon. Everyone ate it, no one commented... I think I covered it up pretty well.... Lesson learned. Always look at the label... more than once!
