Cooking for 50 some years,retired RN, 7 children,18 grandchildren,
Money saving but delicious recipes were my specialties when my children were young.
My favorite things to cook
soups, stews , cassaroles, pie, bar cookies
My favorite family cooking traditions
We used to have home baked bread, rolls,even tortillas. I looked for less expensive recipes in Julia Child, because her methods were so good. We used lamb shank, ox tail, lots of chicken,pot roast,etc.
My cooking triumphs
Every year I give a Christmas party for my club. We've been meeting for 46 years. I always try to present a fancy dessert in a Christmas theme.
My cooking tragedies
One year I gave my friends a lemon pie that was so sour it made your eyes water!(don't know what went Wrong!)
