Happily married 40 some years. Retired and enjoying 1 son & 2 grandson's,homemaking, travel, cooking, reading, poetry and free time with my "hubby" and family. I am Christian and Thank God for my happy life.
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking home style meals and occasionally something "very special"! I have my favorite dishes
that I have "tweaked" to my liking and that of myfamily. I love
"Southern favorites" as well as Italian, Mexican and Chinese. I also love trying new dishes that are
relatively simple but most like 5 star recipes. Healthy is always a plus!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving with all the trimmings!
Christmas with all the family and
"special birthdays" and occasions!
Celebrations are usually around a
wonderful meal and tons of conversation about the meal and
My cooking triumphs
I make a wonderful "Seafood Lasagna"
that many say is their best meal! The same has been said of my Thanksgiving meal. Anything my family loves is my triumph! I like
tradition but crave new recipes.
My cooking tragedies
A few bad biscuits and too thin
gravy. I have definitely improved
in that area! My family will never
let me live down "Great Loaf" early
on in my cooking! They love my
homemade meat loaf! It was bad!
