I am an ordained minister. I discovered that cooking was my way of bringing comfort to people. I began preparing food for the homeless and it was incredible the way they responded to someone making something "special" for them to eat!
My favorite things to cook
pasta of any kind
My favorite family cooking traditions
My grandma Edna making meatloaf and my mother Margaret making potato salad are 2 of my fondest memories.
My cooking triumphs
When I discovered that I COULD cook and nobody got sick!
My cooking tragedies
Making a pot of chili and dropping in the whole container of baking soda. Thought that if a little could get rid of the gas effect, what could a lot do? LOL
