I am a mother of one teenage daughter and a finicky husband. She likes to try new things, he doesn't. I am somewhere in the middle. I love to read cookbooks like novels. I own hundreds of books and magazines all dedicated to recipes and techniques. I just love to cook that's all.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook bread things, holiday meals, comfort foods, can and freeze. My favorite thing is to make it and watch someone else enjoy it as much as I did making it. Give me a hungry person and I am happy.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My daughter's favorite place to eat is "Momma's diner" aka my kitchen. I am my happiest when she is sitting with me while I cook, she is good at giving me a healthy ego by asking questions.
My cooking triumphs
I struggled for years to get the technique just right.
My cooking tragedies
Oh that is an easy question...making pancakes. They are either runny or burnt. I hate the things!
