I get a lot of pleasure from planning and cooking meals for my large, extended family. My 6 year old granddaughter enjoys helping me in the kitchen. It's nice knowing that I am passing something on.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I feel very honored to prepare a traditional Thanksgiving meal for my large family. Staples for the meal are roasted turkey, mashed potatoes/gravy, broccoli casserole, stuffing, and gingered cranberry sauce. The only things that change from year to year are the appetizers and desserts.
My cooking triumphs
Making a coconut cream pie that my husband says is every bit as good as his grandmother's! That's high praise!!
My cooking tragedies
The first time I tried to make southern biscuits. If we had put mortar between them, instead of jelly, we could've built a fine house!
