My husband and I are retired and live year-round on Lake Chapala in Mexico, which has a beautiful climate all year unlike Minnesota where we used to live.
My favorite things to cook
Comfort Food! Pot roasts, pork chops, bread, chili, meatloaf. But I also love to try new and different recipes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Stuffed green peppers and cabbage rolls.
My cooking triumphs
Learning how to make bread and working with yeast.
My cooking tragedies
Oh, there are many! Two stand out. When I first married and learning to cook, I made something called popovers (which I had never had)from a Betty Crocker recipe book. They looked like rolls in the picture, but when I cut into one they were all hollow inside so I threw them out. When I told my husband he laughed and said that's they way they were supposed to be! Another surprise was when I cut into a meatloaf and found a big, shiny green fly buried in it. oops.
