I live in Texas, I enjoy history, genealogy, archaeology, gardening, herblore, herb gardening, and reading.
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy making historical foods, mostly from my family history and from the cultures my family all hailed from. Some places are Sweden, Ireland, Britain, Cuba, Mexico and more.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Trying to outdo the next family member. LOL
My cooking triumphs
I won first place in a cooking contest in Carrizo Springs, Dimmit County, Texas when I was a young girl.
My cooking tragedies
I had some family coming for supper one night and I was very ill. I didn't want to let anyone down so I never told them I was ill. In the mean time, I prepared the dinner and set it to bake, and a fever made me go to bed and sleep. I woke to the smell of smoke and my dinner was burning...sort of about the same time my family showed up. LOL, they forgave me and made me go to bed and my daughter made me her own little batch of chicken soup and I recovered 12 days later.
