I'm old school cook due to growing up on a farm.I enjoy cooking with and for my family and others. I would rather watch other people enjoy what I cook then me eating what I cook. I do enjoy what I cook though. My husband doesn't like to go out to eat anymore because he says he can't this kind of cooking at a restaurant
My favorite things to cook
Baking is tops. I like to make everything homemade if possible. I love to bake cakes and cookies and bread. I like to steam my veggies. I like to broil everything. Everything I do is from scratch, not from a box.
My favorite family cooking traditions
A family favorite is to make 5 or 6 different kinds of cookies, about 10 different kinds of candies, 2 or 3 different kinds of breads for Christmas. We divided them all up on different paper plates, wrapped them all, and gave them out as gifts to friends and family. Top off the holiday with a sugar cube house full of candy and lights and tons of decorations.
My cooking triumphs
Baking cakes and cookies. The latest triumph is chili. Never could make it until I found a recipe for taco soup!
My cooking tragedies
French bread. Never can get it to be like the bakery.
