I'm always interested in finding healthful, make-ahead meals that freeze well. I'm also interested in cooking once a week and ideas about cooking for one or two people.
My favorite things to cook
Pot Roast, Macaroni & Cheese from scratch, Meat Loaf with Caramelized Onions, Chili, Ratatouille, anything I can make in my Dutch oven.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Sunday dinner, holiday meals
My cooking triumphs
I seriously regretted throwing away my tattered, splattered, dog-eared copy of the Better Homes & Gardens cookbook that I'd received for Christmas in 1983. Fortunately, I located a mint-condition copy several year's later.
My cooking tragedies
The first time I made chili, I was sure a "clove" of garlic was the whole bulb. I thought the chili was delicious but some people thought it was intolerable.
