I'm a teacher by profession.
My favorite things to cook
I really love to bake, but I try not to do too much. Any products get sent to my husband's shop or to school after I have one taste.People ask for my BBQ ,the BBQ jalepenos, and the strawberry pie(currently).
My favorite family cooking traditions
Stawberry season! I used to run a pie route. We (the kids and I...I started them picking in first and third grade) would go down the road to the strawberry field early in the morning. Then the kids would clean the strawberries while I made the pie shells and filling. Then we would pack them up and take them to the people on the route in the afternoon.
My cooking triumphs
Strawberry cream cake. I developed the sauce because I didn't like the way the recipe did it.The sauce is also really good as an ice cream sauce. I love strawberries!
My cooking tragedies
When I was a bride, I gleefully invited our friends to come over for elderberry pie. It looked beautiful! But when I took a forkful, I realized the elderberries had pits! That's how I discovered what rum (wild) cherries were.
