Learned to cook as a teenager when my mom "made" us kids each plan & cook dinner 1 night a week. What a great lesson & gift! I have my son and son-in-law help me in the kitchen whenever I am cooking so they might learn to love it also. Cooking for me is a passion and how I show my love to those around me. I also LOVE to entertain, so always looking for an excuse...
My favorite things to cook
Everything... anything... but NOT A BAKER! Anything with fresh herbs.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Holidays of course! My Mom has always done a formal Christmas dinner, with a beautifully set table. Birthdays, and any reason to have friends & family over & serve them dinner!
My cooking triumphs
Baking my 1st pie & it being delicious! Every dinner when the people I love tell me how wonderful it was.
My cooking tragedies
Burning the bread... always!!
