I am a wife, mother of two grown children and a grandmother of one grand-daughter. I enjoy cooking if there is someone here to eat what I cook. Since becoming an empty-nester, I don't cook too often but I love new recipes and ideas for the kitchen.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite things to cook when my kids were living at home was a lot of Italian dishes and, of course, southern' dishes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My favorite family cooking traditions would be cooking a Christmas dinner with all the traditional trimmings which in my family was turkey, southern dressing and cranberry salad along with those wonderful sweet potato casseroles with Kentucky bourbon.
My cooking triumphs
Most of my biggest successes in the kitchen is every year for many years as our children grew up, we would host a family & friends Christmas party and I would make all the food which would include lots of appetizers, cheeseballs, salads, desserts and the traditional Christmas wassail.
My cooking tragedies
Moving into a new house and was anxious to use my new oven with convection roasting and I burned up my chicken! LOL
