I love good food! I do try to cook as natural and healthy as possible on a tight budget. It can be a challenge, especially in some parts of the country where the motto is "If you fry we'll eat it."
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake and really enjoy decorating cakes and cookies. Even though baking is my favorite way to cook, I really enjoy cooking when I have fresh ingredients.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thankgiving Dinner. I love everything about it. I love inviting friends for dinner who do not have family near, and cooking the Thanksgiving Dinner right off the Norman Rockwell painting. I love the laughing and good memories shared over a beautiful Thanksgiving feast, It is perfection.
My cooking triumphs
I enjoy creating new concoctions out of neccessity...especially when the family says..."I hope you wrote this one down, we want it again!"
I have had great success with meatloaf, chicken fettucini alfredo, and some things that I have invented like "Fiesta Bake".
My cooking tragedies
Not knowing how picky my father in law is.
