I am a happily married mother of 5 living in Michigan. I love cooking for the county fairs. My kids keep me very busy.
My favorite things to cook
I would have to say that my favorite things to cook are the recipes that I grew up with. Some of those are roll-em ups, pasty, spanish stew and others.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Some of our favorite family cooking traditions are to allow the kids to cook. By letting them help, we are essentially allowing another generation of cooks to develop. I truly beleive the best chef is the home chef, which begins at home.
My cooking triumphs
My cooking triumphs would include Champion and Reserve Champion candy at the county fair. Champion and Reserve Champion cookie, Reserve Champion Bread and my son taking Best In Show for Junior Cooking.
My cooking tragedies
Ooooooh, there are too many to list, but I would have to say when I made divinity for the first time. My husband and I were really not prepared for what it entailed and needless to say it was a tragedy!
