My favorite things to cook
Love to cook desserts, pasta, seafood, salads, breads, and soups.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Mike's fudge at Christmas, Aunt Ethel's ice box cake Christmas Eve, Darcey's pasta salad in the summer. Used to have herb beds, fruit trees, and huge garden so my cooking was fresh
My cooking triumphs
Canned brandied fruit cocktail from my own fruit trees. Al Brown's Lasagna, a tomatoless lasagna recipe from Better Homes & Gardens magazine in the late '70's, I think. All pies made from scratch.
My cooking tragedies
My first runny butterscotch pie with in-laws in attendence. The spicy grits and shrimp recipe I served to friends two weeks ago from allrecipes.com!
