i am a mom of 3 grown children and the grandmother of 3 teenagers.
I always look for ways to cut recipes down to fewer ingredients. my oldest son wanted to know what was the secret to my chili (lol) i said brown chop meat, 2 cans of tomato soup and add 1 can of red kidney beans starting with 2 TBSP of chili powder (add more to taste)!!!! so simple to make.
My favorite things to cook
Lasagna, beef stew, chicken croquets, home made soup, chicken noodle or rice, and any vegetables i have left over.
My favorite family cooking traditions
cheesecake, decorated cakes
My cooking tragedies
when i was first married, my husband who loved pumkin pie, and i thought i would surprise him. when it called for cloves, i put whole ones in thinking they would melt into the pie, well my husband bit down hard on a whole one, he never told me about the cloves, but never asked for me to make pumpkin pie again!!!!
