Mealtime is the absolute most important time shared in our home. Holidays and every day, we invite others to join us. I have enjoyed cooking for a very long time. What a legacy to leave our children; the idea that the dinner table is for gathering together and sharing.
My favorite things to cook
Mexican, *Italian, and BAKING SWEETS!
My favorite family cooking traditions
New York style cheescake! My family counts the days from one holiday to the next, looking forward to my baking a cheescake. My seven year old daughter is part of my counter tops!!! She is very interested in cooking at such an early age. This makes me proud, and really makes it worth the time I spend in the kitchen. Christmas Cookies!!
My cooking triumphs
Making a good fruit pie crust. All I needed to do was stop trying so hard! Yes it was that simple. I followed the recipe of friend who uses *Butter Flavored Crisco. Finally mastered Candy Cane cookies 12/10- yeah me!!!
My cooking tragedies
I still cannot roll a "Jelly Roll" without it cracking!!!
