Mom & the grandmas & aunts were the great influences in my cooking history. All of them were great cooks!
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook soup from scratch. It's labor intensive but the results are so worth it!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Too many to list!
My cooking triumphs
Cooking for nearly 50 years, still loving it & being open to new recipes, ideas & methods.
My cooking tragedies
The family was starving & dinner was going to be late on a very busy day. Chicken with lots of barbecue sauce was in a glass baking dish in the oven. Suddenly (& without warning), there was the sound of breaking glass. While looking all over the house for the broken glass I began to smell burnt barbecue. I opened the oven to find chicken, sauce & glass shards everywhere. What a mess! :(
