I am a very social person that loves to make people smile and have fun. I also love being at home with my family just relaxing. There isn't many things I won't try at least one time and most things twice.
My favorite things to cook
Large meals that take a lot of planning. I love baking anything and soups make me happy. There is something about making meals from scratch that I find relaxing. I love cooking something basic and then turning it into another couple of different meals.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving and Christmas are my times to cook. Getting the kids and grandkids involved in helping are the best memory makers ever. No one gets to bring something to the house, but they do get to help cook it with me.
My cooking triumphs
I have made a spaghetti sauce recipe that was published in a cookbook.
My cooking tragedies
I made a chicken dinner that was so bad I hid it in the oven till the next day and the dog wouldn't even eat it. He growled at it.
