I'm the oldest of 11 children. Was cooking complete meals at 12.
Mom is doing great at 86.
My favorite things to cook
Tasty foods with a lot of onion and garlic. Lots of unusual herbs and spices on plain food such as squash, brocolli, tomatoes etc.
My favorite family cooking traditions
When we gather we have a feast. Turkey, ham and all of the sides.
Thanksgiving is my favorite, next is Christmas.
My cooking triumphs
I can cook a scrumptous meal in 45 min to an hour. Usually 45 min.
I don't care to eat out as I'm a better cook than most chefs. That is a gift from God.
My cooking tragedies
I made up some different cakes that had to be thrown away.
