I always have enjoyed good food. I'm retired now and do not cook or bake any more. I turned those reins over to my children and their spouses. Mexican dinners, baking and making candy from scratch were my specialties.
My favorite things to cook
I always enjoyed making cookies. Along with my daughter we made 1200 fancy cookies for her wedding and I participated in cooking baking for our sons and other relatives.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We always had company for holiday dinners. They were special to our family. Our children and their spouses carry on the traditions..I and my husband always benefit from this.
My cooking triumphs
Teaching my children..... Three sons and a daughter to cook and bake. One son and daughter are especially good cooks and bakers.
My cooking tragedies
When I was first married we had unexpected company and I tried to make a lemon meringe pie with instant pudding. It really looked beautiful but just would not set. I never made another lemon meringue pie. Learning experience..10 points Never try to bake meringue on an instant pudding pie.
