I'm single, over 50, and livin' large in Northern California. I have 2 grown sons and 2 grandkids, that live out of state. I live with my mother and do most of the shopping and cooking. Currently, I'm unemployed.
My favorite things to cook
Mom doesn't eat much and I'm trying to lose a few pounds so we keep it pretty simple around here. I really love my indoor grill. I've never been much of a baker, which is good, I don't need the temptation.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Just the traditional family Thanksgiving turkey dinner. We love cornbread, sausage, sage and mushroom stuffing. Mom always bakes the pecan pies. We usually do a prime rib roast for Christmas and always black eyed peas on New Years Day for luck!
My cooking triumphs
I recently made a DELICIOUS shrimp, angel hair pasta, feta cheese, tomato and marinated artichoke dish for the man in my life. It was sooo good!
My cooking tragedies
I've had my share. I say if I don't cut myself or burn myself while cooking I consider that a triumph!
