I am a mother of 2 boys that grew up in the country and then moved to the city limits after I took on a new job. I miss the country so much. My boys are 12 and 19.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake cakes, pies and cookies. Making homemade strawberry preserves and cooking fresh corn are my favorite things. I also like grilling steaks, burgers, and chicken. My favorite meal to cook is either roast beef or chicken and dumplings.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving dinner! Turkey, dressing (made with potatoes), dumplings, fresh fried corn, rolls, sweet taters with marshmallows. Prune cake. YUM
My cooking triumphs
I won a chili contest several years ago by using deer meat and not using tomato sauce. Won 1st Place!!
My cooking tragedies
well.. besides when I blew up my first turkey, it would have to be when I fixed 20 lbs of mashed potatoes and then put soured milk in them by mistake. YUCK
