My favorite things to cook
I love to bake cakes, cookies, and breads. I love reading cookbooks. I am always trying new recipes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Indiana sugar cream pie!! We love chicken homemade noodles over mashed potatoes. My in-laws had a smorgasboard restaurant that was always full of people. They had the very best salads there. My mother in-law is the greatest cook I know. She has taught me well!
My cooking triumphs
Indiana Sugar Cream pie- after several attempts finally can make it just right. I finally can make the entire Thanksgiving dinner by myself!
My cooking tragedies
I tried making sweet potatoe pie and it was very lumpy. I also made one of those dump cakes and the cake portion was dry, it never absorbed any of the butter. Both of these were cooked on the same Thanksgiving dinner. Everything I made that year for Thanksgiving has something wrong with it!
