I cooked 5-7 nights a week for a family of 4 over 20 years. Now, with no children in the house and a new hubby that loves to try new things, I am having fun trying finding new recipes and converting old ones to feed fewer people.
My favorite things to cook
I still love to bake cookies. I don't make as many as I used to, or always bake completely from scratch, but there is nothing like the way the house smells when there are cookies in the oven.
My favorite family cooking traditions
The holidays were and are very important cooking events. From the prep work to carving the turkey, it was always fun to be a part of. Though, over the years, I have developed a preference to participate rather than lead the whole thing.
My cooking triumphs
I think any time a person can put a healthy meal on the table for your family, whether you spend 2 hours or 20 minutes, is a triumph. I am blessed for the years past and grateful to have many years to come.
My cooking tragedies
I'm sure there were a few, but thankfully I can't remember them.
