I grew up on a farm, the oldest of four daughters. My Mom taught me to cook at a young age, as she had the three younger children to look after and also had to work on the farm. I'm married, live out in the country, and enjoy gardening and spending time outdoors. I also love to collect antiques.
My favorite things to cook
I tend to like pasta dishes, just throwing things together without a recipe. I also like to take new desserts to parties and family functions.
My favorite family cooking traditions
All of the goodies we made a Christmas time. I suppose cut-out sugar cookies are at the top of the list.
My cooking triumphs
I won a local recipe/cooking contest, and received all sorts of fun prizes.
My cooking tragedies
Some beef stroganoff I made for my hubby while we were still dating. It didn't burn up or anything, but just didn't taste good.
