Friends enjoy my cooking and baking. It keeps them out of the kitchen and keeps me doing what I enjoy. I have come up with many of my own recipes by trial and error. During the winter I like to bake and summer and fall I enjoy using fresh produce from the garden in my cooking.
My favorite things to cook
It is hard for me to say what things I like to cook the most. I see a recipe that sounds good, I make it. Some great recipes have been added to my recipe boxes and of coarse there are some that I would not make again.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I really try to keep my cooking and baking healthful. So when I look at recipes that sound good, there may have to be some changes made to bring the fat calories down if possible. If not they are not made often. I collect cookbooks and am constantly online for more recipes.
My cooking tragedies
About 30 years ago I invited guests over for a beef roast supper. Unfortunately, my pot roast really shrunk (and burned), so ended up pulling hot dogs out of the freezer. So much for showing off my culinary skills at that time.
