I live in southeastern Comanche County Kansas. I have 2 kids and a wonderful husband who is a rancher. We have a cow/calf operation that has been in his family for over 100 years. I love to cook for them and our friends!
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake cookies. I usually make alot at a time and end up giving them to our neighbors. I personally love to make appetizers. But nothing beats a grilled steak or slow cooked roast!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I really don't have many. I am a self taught cook. It comes naturally. Although every Thanksgiving I make my Grandma Ruth's spinach balls. They are easy and good for you.
My cooking triumphs
Probably when we have cattle work days. I have to cook the day before, or have something fast to throw in a crock pot. There are usually 6-8 guys and I have to be out of the house at 8 am to help, riding my horse of driving to pick up.
My cooking tragedies
Not many, all in all I have been blessed with the ability to cook.
