I'm a wife and grandmother, and mom to 2 fuzzy kids and numerous aquarium denizens. I spend a lot of time on the computer and I love to encourage friends who are hesitant in the kitchen and discuss strategies with my more confident cronies.
My favorite things to cook
The Stir Fry that my son loves so much, My Simple CheeseCake that I got from a friend years ago, and My Fruit Bread (made from Bisquick Banana Nut bread recipe). I absolutely love to put together a simple meal and make it look special!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Oyster dressing and cheesecake on special holidays. I miss my Nana's Lamb cake for Easter. We aren't sure what happened to the cast iron form that made her Lamb that laid on the table, and she decorated it with coconut and other embellishments.
My cooking triumphs
It's all in transition. I do things new several times a year. I have been perfecting my Oatmeal cookies recently, and that's a pretty big win, now I have more ideas brewing lol. Win or lose, it's all good
My cooking tragedies
I vividly remember the first time I tried to make prime rib at home... it was burnt and raw and I destroyed it!... then we found out that the middle was perfect, despite that I wasn't.
