I am a 10 yr breast cancer survivor. I'm in my early 60's and just joined a gym with a personal trainer. Just me and my husband at home. Sometimes our big meal is at noon and other times at 6 or 7. Like new (not exotic) few ingredients and easy recipes especially slow cooker and casseroles. Would like to have an "e" pal. I love to chat on line.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook the "old (unhealthy) comfort foods. I love my meat and potatoes. I like to bake if recipe isn't too complicated. Never have mastered the fine are of pie crusts!
My favorite family cooking traditions
The favorite family recipe is potato soup from my very first cookbook that I received in 1954. My daughter usually makes it now for Christmas eve dinner after church, while we keep an eye out for Santa!
My cooking triumphs
No real triumphs. Just an ordinary blah cook (at least I think I am).
My cooking tragedies
When I was about 8 years old I made a birthday cake for my mother. Probably my first cake (no box cakes then). It fell, I put the homemade icing on it while it was still hot and the cake turned to mush. I hid it behind the piano!!
