I'm not a chef but I love to cook for family and friends. I collect cookbooks and have hundreds in my collection, my favorites being from local groups and organizations
My favorite things to cook
I love to make desserts. My family has many great cooks, each with their own specialties. I like to bring desserts to functions
My favorite family cooking traditions
When I was a child, my parents had the largest home, an old mansion with a large kitchen. My mom, her sisters and her mother would all gather at our home, taking turns watching all the kids and making tons of cookies, which were split among all. We are still a very close family, and I would like to restart the tradition with my mother and sister!
My cooking triumphs
My hubby enjoys my dinners, and I guess a happy hubby is the most important person in my life!
My cooking tragedies
Trying to make a banana cake by adding bananas to a box mix- We had a goo that ended up being fed to the critters at a friend's mountain cabin!LOL!
