I love the kitchen. Have been cooking since forever it seems. I also love to read. Anything! Have faced some health issues they past few years and that has slowed me down a bit so now I supervise in the kitchen almost as much fun NOT!
My favorite things to cook
baking cakes and cookies. Love to do big holiday dinners. I like to experiment, too.
My favorite family cooking traditions
my Mom's sweet potatoes. My waldorf salad
my sons like my "rangetop baked beans"
coconut cake is always a hit!
My cooking triumphs
My coconut and rum cakes.(every time I make them I end up taking orders for purchases) This year the pumkin roll (grandson's new favorite) And my special "rangetop baked beans"
I make a mean chili too
My cooking tragedies
Trying to make a holiday cake my mom could eat. She can not tolerate any cinnamon, pie spice, nutmeg or ginger. I didn't succeed.
