I love to cook! I'm so very thankful for my grandma, she had the patience to teach me all her tricks. I also had my stepmom as a big influence in my cooking. My grandma has been gone for some times now. In memory of her I am putting together a family cookbook. I would ultimately like to have it published.
My favorite things to cook
I really enjoy making things with 5 or less ingredients in them. Sometimes simple is best. I also enjoy baking cookies with my step-sons.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Unfortunetly all of my family traditions have died off. It's up to me to start new ones!
My cooking triumphs
I'm proud of the fact that everyone I cook for loves my cooking!
My cooking tragedies
This Christmas I wanted to make some iced cookies totally from scratch....Well, the cookies were very bland and the icing was very oily and separated...Needless to say, I think my mom was the only one who tried one and I think that was out of sympathy! I should have made the same old chocolate chip cookies I always make. You live and you learn!
