I learned to cook watching my midwest raise grandmother and learned a lot of old fashioned recipes that are tried and true. My mom on the other hand is more adventurouse and daring and is an excellent cook. One of my favorite cooks is Paula Deen. She truly loves to create, cook.. and eat food that is lip smacking good! I do try lighter versions of recipes and lower sodium. I am always trying to lose a few..I have 2 teenagers. Son 15 and Daughter 13. Love them so much! I love to decorate and cook for my family.
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking fall recipes. That is my favorite time of year. Warm casseroles, homemade soups, and I love to bake, make candy and decorate and display food for gatherings..
My favorite family cooking traditions
Whenever I go home to visit to Molalla Oregon, from my new home in Wisconsin, my mom knows to make me my favorte dinner. Fried chicken, mashed tators, gravy, corn on the cob, and biscuits.. Grandma on the other hand makes the best ham I have ever had.. I think it must be the gravy she makes with it. I like to make Turkey Tacos~low fat, Breakfast casseroles, unique cookies and fudge for holidays..
My cooking triumphs
I like to make Cheesecake and mess with making unique flavors.. Chocolate orange, Maple choc. chip.
I love to make Prime Rib roast also once a year as they are spendy. Now that I have made them a few times, they are so easy and so delisciouse..
