We are empty nesters. We have three adult children. Last year we purchased a lake home an hour and a half away where our first grandbaby (due any day now)will be living with our daughter and her husband. Our oldest daughter lives 5 minutes from her sister! It's great.
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy trying new recipes for cookies, cakes and breads and trying pasta recipes especially.
My favorite family cooking traditions
baking Christmas cookies with my adult daughters when they come home for a long weekend. Both of them come on different weekends armed with several recipes and we have a baking marathon for 2 days and end up with dozens of cookies for them to share with their friends.
My cooking triumphs
Our church offers Apples of Gold sessions where young ladies participate in a bible study followed by a cooking demonstration and a meal. This takes place in my home and I have wonderful memories of each session.
My cooking tragedies
Our pastor and his two daughters came for dinner while his wife was out of town. Everything I served was a flop! A new recipe for lemon pie was unedible and the blueberry pie was like a "Knox Blocks". All three of them ate it with smiles on their faces!
