I come from a long line of great mid-western cooks. I love to prepare the food I grow and preserve. Gourmet to me is eating a tomato still warm from the sun!
My favorite things to cook
I love to make all kinds of deserts. There is nothing like putting together a great thick soup that bursts with flavor. I guess I love to cook everything!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Having the family get together for great celebrations (any excuse will do). Passing my knowledge to the next generations is the most rewarding and fun!
My cooking triumphs
My chicken pot pie is to die for! On a cold snowy night, there is nothing as good as my chicken pot pie. That and a couple of warm cho-chip cookies are my identity.
My cooking tragedies
As a young bride(we had no money) I mixed everything in the refrigerator in one pot thinking I'd have a great soup and I had to throw it away!The dog wouldn't even eat it.
