The last time I posted here was at least a month ago, and I said then that I was perfecting my “Italian Gravy” recipe and would post it when I was done. Well… I’m a slacker! I’m sorry to report I have not been working on this recipe… I think I got “burnt out” on it a few months back. In the…
I love to cook for friends/family and entertain, share new recipes (and old favorites) with my coworkers. I have 2 daschunds to keep me company...their job when I cook is floor patrol.... As a young girl growing up in rural Illinois, I learned to cook early, mostly basic, country food -- meat and potatoes -- and dessert, of course. As an adult, I've learned to cook healthier dishes, too, but still enjoy hearty country cooking.
My favorite things to cook
Chicken, of any sort...roast, holiday meals, desserts, tasty healthy food.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Baking cookies at Christmas, holiday meals.
