Happily married to my highschool sweetheart for 35 years. I've been a housewife and mom whose goal has been to raise our children to be responsible and independent adults. To feed them healthy food so their bodies could be as healthy as their spirits. All 3 are grown and on their own and still love us!
My favorite things to cook
Italian, fresh vegetables, finding new recipes all the time. I love this site!!
My favorite family cooking traditions
To cook mostly from scratch.
My cooking triumphs
Learning to bake all our own bread. From loaves, dinner rolls, rolls for burgers and hot dogs, english muffins and lots more.
My cooking tragedies
My first tries at baking bread were bad. My husband used to tease me that when he carried his lunch box I'd packed for him with his sandwich made from homemade whole wheat bread, it was like getting his weight lifting in at the same time. The bread didn't rise right but I refused to give up and just kept at it until I'd mastered it.
