I've never moved more than two miles in my life. My husband and I built our house, by ourselves, using a book called " How To Build Your Own House" on land from my Grandpa's farm. My children (2 sons and a dsughter) are all grown and gone. Have 2 grandchildren, a boy and a girl who are also all grown up.
My favorite things to cook
Desserts, pies and homemade soups.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My children, and now my grandson always helped make the fresh cranberry/orange relish using the old fashioned hand-cranked meat grinder.
My cooking triumphs
I make really good pies and homemade soups.
My cooking tragedies
My first time making biscuits, I put the ingredients all in at once and wound up with a gooey unusable mess. I threw it all out!
