My favorite things to cook
I love to bake for the holidays. Desserts, cookies, & appetizers.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Quite a few years back I started a cookie & ornament exchange with the women in my family & close friends. It has become such a fun get-together that we all look forward to every year. I have also now become the designated baker in the family to carry on my Grandma's wonderful recipes.
My cooking triumphs
Being able to re-create some of my families most loved recipes that have been passed down for generations.
My cooking tragedies
Some of my fat free recipes, what an awful baking fiasco! My husband & I had not been married long when I tried a fat free banana bread, it was dry, & tasteless! I was going to throw it out then I noticed my husband had been eating it! I asked him if he liked it, he said it was ok, I said that I thought it was horrible! Well, he told me he had not wanted to hurt my feelings! We had a good laugh & tossed the awful bread!
