I'm a new grandmother who has never cared a whole lot about cooking. But as I approach retirement, I want to do better.
My favorite things to cook
Anything baked (especially chocolate). Quick and easy meals with lots of flavor. Crock pot meals.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Baking and freezing Christmas cookies in the months leading up to the holidays.
My cooking triumphs
I make a mean Chicken Cacciatore. My prime rib at Christmas always comes out wonderful.
My cooking tragedies
Don't put peas in a stew at the beginning, it makes the stew a green, mushy mess.
