I like keeping busy and caring for my mother, helping run our business, and playing with my granddaughters does that very well. I leaned to cook from my German & scicilian mother, my adventurous father, and my grandmother from the Ozarks. I enjoy baking with my granddaughters. As we live in the desert we spend a lot of time grilling for our friends. Currently my focus on food is healthy and quick. My biggest challenge hasbeen preparing meals for my aging mother who has difficulty swallowing & chewing.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite foods to prepare are family recipes that havebeen passed down to me such as marinara sauce, German chocolate cake, and down on the farm basics.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Our family traditions are diverse from German chocolate cake, marinara, oyster stuffing, and home baked cookies & pies to grilled steaks, country gravy with biscuits and pecanpie.
