I have been married for 34 years. I am the mother of five grown children, two daughters and three sons, and a Grami to seven grandchildren ranging from age twelve down to three, four grandsons and three granddaughters. We try to have each of the grandchildren spend the night at least once every two weeks so we can have special time with them.
My favorite things to cook
I love to decorate cookies and preserve all types of foods. My mother canned lots of food when I was young and so I have carried on that tradition.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Decorating cookies at Christmas time and other holidays. Preparing a huge Thanksgiving feast. On Christmas morning we have Christmas breakfast with the whole family. Every year the traditional breakfast includes sausage gravy over biscuits.
My cooking triumphs
I just learned how to can venison,and chicken, both are so delicious. Canning meat is extremely easy. Tastes like roast beef. This year I have canned many things including soup, spaghetti sauce, beets, pickles, salsa, peaches and lots of pears.
