Grew up in the country, moved to the city. Widowed, one adult daughter.
My favorite things to cook
Comfort food, roasts, slow-cooker creations. Baking is fun! I love to share the food that I cook.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Mom's banana cookies and homemade vegetable beef soup, and her beef stew.
My cooking triumphs
Spicy crockpot chicken with red peppers. See A Taste of Home's web page.
My cooking tragedies
Can't think of anything in particular, but I HATE it when I ruin a recipe by forgetting an ingredient or trying a shortcut that doesn't work. Wasting my time and money is SO annoying!
