I learned to cook by 'osmosis', in other words I watched my Mother and learned by observing.
She cooked tasty, basic foods which most people liked a lot.
My favorite things to cook
Chicken tops the list. I could it eat every day: fried, baked, boiled, in casseroles, salads, etc., etc.
My favorite family cooking traditions
The Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays are special and only the best recipes will do.
That's when I serve duck with sweet and sour red cabbabe.
The baked turkey must have giblet stuffing.
My cooking triumphs
Most people like my soups. My own favorite dessert is a rich, simple pound cake.
My cooking tragedies
My first attempt at biscuits produced white hockey pucks.
