About this Cook
I have been married for 32 years to a wonderful man who is my best friend and food critic. We have two wonderful children, one terrific Son-in-Law,one Grandson and one Granddaughter who are the loves of our lifes.
My favorite things to cook
I really like trying new recipes, I am very interested in ethnic cooking. My family is very easy to please so it makes it easy on me to try new things.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving without a doubt is my favorite. It's just all about food and family. My daughter cooked her very first complete Thanksgiving when she was only 12. We still laugh at the pictures of her looking exhausted while mashing the potatoes.
My cooking triumphs
Again I would have to say Thanksgiving, after preparing it almost every year for 27 years I think I have it perfected.
My cooking tragedies
So many, as a newlywed just about everything I made was a tradgedy. I have not really gotten into baking, which is fine because my Son-in-Law has. He made Christmas Dinner for everyone this year and his Apple Pie was amazing(homemade crust and all).

Mexican Style Cornbread
Very dense(my family did not like the consistency)and quite bland even though I used two whole fresh jalapenos, I will stick with my basic cornbread and honey butter.

Blueberry Cream Muffins
I see that I am in the minority on this but it just had no flavor. It tasted like bread with blueberries in it.
