started cooking very young..maybe 11-12 on a wood stove ..cupcakes is the first thing I remember..no cake mix either..now that I'm older don't seem to like it as much ..there's only 2 of us... no fun..I'm 67 raised 6 kids between my hubby &I we have 21 grandk and 4 great grands and one in the oven..they live all over the U S and my oldest lives here ..35 mi away and is a God send ..she helps with the computor stuff and explains all the medical stuff.
My favorite things to cook
casseroles,cookies and bread.. I prefer to cook for crowds..mexican food ,like to try ethnic food now ..since it's just hubby and I
My favorite family cooking traditions
my traditions .. was making Christmas cookies with my 6 kids and sharing with everyone ..that was our family gift..My oldest son was a master of the spritz gun..
My cooking triumphs
just basking in the oohs and ahs a recipe that I made ...that I thot was a breeze like pasta salad..
My cooking tragedies
Well ,,,whenI was in 6th grade my parents were outside getting ready to dynamite a hole for a septic tank ...anyway they didn't let me know .. so I was busy making chocolate cupcakes (ya know .cocoa)and was measuring just lost in my own world.. and all of a sudden..BOOM!AND what ever I was measuring went ... flying ... anyway I finished my cupcakes and we weren't allowed to eat any 'til our lunches next day .. and I tasted mine& if you've ever tasted plain cocoa ,,,plecky they were bitter as sin all I could think of my daddys lunch.. I never lived that faux pas down..
