As a young girl I would watch my mother make her famous country style steak.We had so much fun together because it was just she and I.She wwould let me flour the meat and tenderize it.I would have flour all over me.Helping mother cook became our tradition.
My cooking triumphs
My Turkey and stuffed dressing. It was so juicy and the dressing was moist and so tasty. The flavors were perfect with the white wine.
My cooking tragedies
My husband and I were living in Poland at the time and he had picked some cherries off our friends tree.I decided to surprise him with a cherry pie.when he came home he couldn't waite to sink his teeth into it. As he took his first bite he almost broke his teeth because I forgot to pit the cherries. Poor Mike
