About Me
I am a self-taught cook with a passion for comfort foods. Soups, stews and casseroles are my faves. Having lost almost 30 pounds recently with another 40 or so to go has taught me an entirely new way to shop for, prepare and enjoy food. I am learning I don’t have to give up the types of foods I love, just the way I make them.
My favorite things to cook
whatever...I just like to cook.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I have lots of them. We try a new breakfast casserole everytime we bring breakfast to Sunday School and our Sunday night Bible study we all try to out do each other with our refreshments. Its a lot of fun to try new recipes to Wow everyone.
My cooking triumphs
I found a recipe for drunk chicken and smoked it. The most incredible chicken I have ever tasted. I wish I would have kept the recipe.
My cooking tragedies
Oatmeal in the slow cookers. By Morning it was hard and crusty all around except the very center, which had the consistancy of paste.
