My favorite things to cook
Hearty soups from scratch, yeast breads.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I grew up near Detroit on Appalachian foods.
My cooking triumphs
"Cream of". Made with a little hamburger, limp vegetables, wide noodles and 'cream of something' soup. My kids loved it and although they are now in their 30's, ask for it whenever we get together. The oldest tells me that he has made it for his family, too.
My cooking tragedies
Spaghetti with shrimp. Even the dog wouldn't eat it.
