My favorite things to cook
I love to try new recipes; baking is very therapeutic for me. If I am stressed, I get in the kitchen and make cookies, muffins, quick breads,or yeast breads. Takes my mind off any problems, at least for awhile!!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving is very traditional with my family. If I change anything, they get very upset!! They will allow a new vegetable, however, I have to prepare my mother's southern cornbread dressing, gravy, macaroni and cheese, and fruit salad or it isn't Thanksgiving!
My cooking tragedies
One year at Thanksgiving, I had a new oven with the automatic cook and turn off feature. My mother accidentally pushed the wrong button and after a couple of hours, I noticed there was no cooking turkey smell.....the oven was not on and dinner was delayed a bit!! I've had many other "trajedies", too numerous to mention. Even "expert" cooks mess up!!
