Hav quit working outside the home. I now watch Grandchildren & pets so Mothers can work. Live in South due to retired military husband. Dearly miss the fall leaves but not the winter snow. When I have cool weather try to crochet for charity, have done some blankets for LINUS
My favorite things to cook
Holiday dinners, but I'm reaching the point where I wish the menu was not"set in stone"
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas cookies where everyone has a chore & you can do many types at a time.
My cooking triumphs
I make great piecrusts which is ironic because my children only want the insides of the pie. At school bakesales my pies & fudge soldout first but now I'm Grandma and demoted to cupcakes.
My cooking tragedies
I can't make yeast bread, could "shellac" my loaves & use them as doorstops. My Mother& Sister are fab at bread baking & my GD loves to do the mixing she's not quite big enough to knead it all, they make BIG batches. My daughter loves her breadmachine.
