I'm 79 years young, retired and love to cook, sew and crochet doll clothes, surf the net and visit with my internet friends; talk to my grandkids on a monthly basis. Three grand kids live in Arkansas; two live in California, 1 in Oklahoma and 1 in Iowa. One great-grand kid lives in California, Seven live in Arkansas, 4 in Iowa and 2 live in Oklahoma.
My favorite things to cook
COOKIES!!! and dinners for two.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My parents were from Poland. My children's father's parents had a mixture of Scottish, Irish, English and Potawatamie Indian. My oldest son's wife's family were from Arkansas of Irish descent. My youngest son's wife family were a mixture of italian, Greek and French...so we all enjoyed a variety of foods which we prepare for family reunions, picnics and the holidays.
My cooking triumphs
At age 9, I finally made a pie crust that was light and flaky...not like the rubber ball I'd made before! So far all of the pie crusts have been great!
