I rarely eat out. Honestly, I can cook most foods better, cheaper and healthier than restaurants. I cook dinner 5-6 nights per week (leftovers the other nights), plus pack breakfast and lunch for my husband and I for work 5 days per week. I'm in the kitchen a lot - so I better like it.
My favorite things to cook
Pot roast, hot sandwiches, soups, pies, casseroles.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My grandmother's famous "Grannie Annie" cream pies. She owned a small-town cafe 50 years ago and old timers still talk about those pies. Mine are almost as good.
My cooking triumphs
Cooking fast - get out of my way in the kitchen, I'm a whirlwind. And finding this website so I have access to endless ideas for dinner.
My cooking tragedies
I STILL cannot master the perfect meringue for my cream pies.
