I am a retired RN. Mother of two adult sons, one a pastor the other an RN. Four granddaughters. Grand children are the next best thing to your own children. I am now attempting to learn some new recipes and teach them to my grands. I have found many new recipes and new ways of preparing some of the old.
My favorite things to cook
Baked macaroni and cheese, potato salad, Spareribs, sauerkraut and white potatoes together. Pound cake and apple pie.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Lots of food. Baked , broiled and fried. Christmas is when all of the cooks show off what they are known to cook best.
My cooking triumphs
Baked ham and potato salad like my grandmas, so the family says. Recently I learned to make saugage and peppers.
My cooking tragedies
Too many to name. but one of the worse was trying to fry a fricasse chicken before I knew chickens were different.
