My favorite things to cook
I enjoy downhome cooking, but also enjoy trying new recipes. I've been married since 1949 (now widowed) and have been a housewife/homemaker ever since. There are 2 adults living with me so I still continue to cook.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My tradional menus consist of meat, potaoes, gravy, salad and vegetable. I don't bake very often but when I do it's usally Crazy
Cake, which my family loves. It's so simple and mixes and bakes in one pan. How easy can you get?
My cooking triumphs
Well, I've very seldom cooked anything my family didn't like. So guess I've been successful, lol.
My cooking tragedies
Not long after I married I tried baking a cherry pie for my hubby on a Dutch oven placed over a single burner hot plate. The dough was burnt on the bottom and raw on the top. Never tried that again! Maybe that's why I don't bake much any more.
