I started cooking when I was about 18 or 19. I wasn't really good until I met my husband. Then I started experimenting and making new things. I love all recipes because I can try all sorts of new things. My husband loves to be my guinea pig.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake. I make my own pie crusts so I do all of the desserts for our Holiday get togethers. My in-laws have made me the all time pie maker. I also love to make salads and appetizers for all of our parties and get togethers.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love to make cookies at Christmas. And as much work as it is to make 7 or 8 pies for Christmas dinner I still enjoy it.
My cooking triumphs
I made my first homemade cherry pie this year. My fater-in-law brought me two big bowls of cherries that I had to pit and I made 4 pies with them. They came out perfect. I was very proud of myself. It always feels good when someone tells me how good my cooking is.
My cooking tragedies
Well when I was about 15 years old I burnt spaghettio's. Don't ask. I got made fun of by my brothers forever.
