I have always been surrounded by wonderful cooks. I learned to cook by watching my mother and grandmother. Now my three children love to help me in the kitchen and are learning to cook themselves. My husband loves to come home to see what I've cooked up for dinner. I like to keep him guessing.
My favorite things to cook
fried chicken, mashed potatoes, lasagna, homemade applesauce and apple butter.
My favorite family cooking traditions
The holidays of course. My mother always made huge dinners (and still does). She always would cook up something unique every year to go with the turkey or prime rib such as pumpkin soup with peanut butter croutons. It sounds weird but it is really good and nutricious.
My cooking triumphs
My homemade lasagna!
My cooking tragedies
I am sure there has been one but I can't think of one off the top of my head.
