I love food. Cooking is a diversion for me. I find it as relaxing as a nice, long bath and a good book. I live with a dog and 3 cats, who sample my cooking and think I'm a goddess.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake. I have a wonderful grandmother to thank for that. I also love slow cooking, whether it be in the crock-pot, stove or a Dutch oven.
My favorite family cooking traditions
To me, family is what cooking is all about. I grew up in an era when America was moving away from the kitchen, but somehow still love to cook. The kitchen is as much a "living room", as any other part of the house.
My cooking triumphs
My pies! They're well-known and always requested. I would love to open a bakery.
My cooking tragedies
I never look at my less desirables as tragedies...they're learning experiences.
