The third of eleven children, I grew up cooking!! Having lived most of my adult life in Southern Caifornia I have been exposed to every kind of food out there. My husband enjoys all types of food,so I often can be found in the kitchen trying out a new recipe!!
My favorite things to cook
Baking is a real joy of mine, but I also enjoy making main dishes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making cake donuts with the grandchildren on summer mornings.
My cooking triumphs
We served a crab stuffed salmon for my daughter's wedding. With the help of my sister-in-law, we prepared this very formal dinner for 75 guests. We still get compliments from guests (17 years later)!!
My cooking tragedies
After putting all the final finishes on a wedding cake, the whole side of the bottom tier broke off!! I had to dismantle the cake, rebake and decorate the bottom tier. Thank goodness the wedding wasn't until late in the afternoon!!
