My mother taught me to cook 40 years ago when I was a teenager. She was a no frizzle home cook. My style is the same. Simple food, done good.
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy making desserts, but I find just cooking anything is relaxing.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every Christmas I have to make banquet. I missed 1 year and my brother-in-law was disappointed. Every year since then I make sure he gets own piece.
My cooking triumphs
I've been cooking since I was a teenager and my biggest triumph came just a year ago when I made appetizers for 200+ people for a reception at my church.
My cooking tragedies
I accidentally used corn starch in place of powdered sugar to frost a cake. The cake was 1/2 frosted before I realized what was wrong.
