About this Cook
I come from a long line of wonderful, but simple country cooks. I love trying new recipes that use ingredients that are new and different for me. I'm trying to cook and eat more healthy dishes these days, but still love to use the real things like real butter, real cream and really fresh fruits and vegetables.
My favorite things to cook
Aside from recipes handed down to me from my Grandma, Mom, and Aunts, my favorite dishes to cook are Italian foods. I've always wanted to visit Europe, and someday hope to go to Tuscany, Italy.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I just love getting together with family or friends when everyone brings a dish of their own to share. About once a month, several of my siblings (yes I have many) and their spouses get together for "Game Night". We all bring a favorite recipe and enjoy a full meal together. After we eat, we all collect in the main room for a game. We usually play "Catch A Phrase", and laugh so hard that we are worn out by the end of the evening.
My cooking triumphs
I am well-known in my family for my homemade chicken and noodles. Everyone tells me they taste just like my Mom and Grandma used to make. That's the best compliment I could ever hope for!
My cooking tragedies
Not enough space to list them!!!!!!!!!
