Married to a wonderful man since 1961 who loves whatever I cook ( which makes me want to cook and makes it fun)
My favorite things to cook
Yeast breads - they smell wonderful cooking, and the recipes are very "forgiving".
"Scratch" birthday cakes, especially for our grandchildren.
Simple recipes that let the flavor of what you're cooking shine.
My cooking triumphs
I once won an ice cream recipe contest put on by the local dairy council and had my picture and recipe in our local paper - not that big of a deal, but the kids thought it was fun and entered the next year. They made it to the finals.
My cooking tragedies
In 48 years of marriage, too many to count. If you never try, you never fail.
