I love all things old. I think everything pre 1960 is awesome. The cars, clothes, houses, everything. It was beautiful. Things weren't just function, they had form as well. There was pride and quality in the way people did things.
My favorite things to cook
I have to admit, I am a better baker than a cook. I think my friends have radar for when I turn on the oven. I have yet to keep a batch of cookies for myself.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I loved the fact that if someone showed up at dinner time, the family insisted they stay. The dinner table was always lively and warm.
My cooking triumphs
I like cooking from scratch. Canned, frozen and pre-made foods are not my thing. I blew my mom away last year when she found out I baked my own bread. That was quite a coup.
