About this Cook
I was born in Springfield, MA on Halloween. I am 53, a mother, grandmother and caregiver of my 90 yr. old grandmother. I collect quotes. I love entertaining. I am a breast cancer survivor and I love life.
My favorite things to cook
In love to grill anything. I enjoy cooking foods I grew up on. I
My favorite family cooking traditions
I cook holiday dinners(Christmas and Thanksgiving dinner) early like my grandmother did and the foods we had.
My cooking triumphs
Finally getting Mama's pound cake "almost" as good as hers. Also my dressing taste pretty good. I learned so much from my grandmother. She can't remember that she was a great cook but I do and I got so many of her recipes and techniques when she could tell me. Thankful for that!!
My cooking tragedies
It took me many years of failing at making that pound cake. It was a disaster in the beginning. I am still working on making the perfect rolls.
