From a small town, farm raised and loved it!! I still prefer to live in the country. We now live outside the city limits on 8 + acres and have out own garden and a small,8 trees, orchard. A very nice strawberry bed, asparagus and rubbarb. We still want to get a couple apple trees, but I am pretty picky about what kind I want. We are wanting to buid a chicken house and pen. Have to put a wire netting pm the chicken pen as we have several different kinds of hawks. I am wanting to raise the Americunas and some brown egg layers along with a few banties.
My favorite things to cook
Bread, danish, pie and cakes. I like to bake my parmesean chicken and pork chops. I do a pretty good job on my bbq ribs and pork steaks.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I guess I pretty much started my own tradition in cooking, except for the baking. My mother and all us girls liked to bake and can. I still love making my own bread and prefer my own recipes for that.
My cooking triumphs
Making my first,and last, wedding cake. I thought it was going to be a disaster but turned out not bad at all, with my own roses on top of the cake.
My cooking tragedies
My lemon meringue pie!!! On thanksgiving in 96, I was trying to get everything together and cleaned up from all the cooking, had all my ingredients out and started my pie filling, When we finished dinner and was ready for dessert, everyone me on my pie,then I went to put food away so we could visit, I realized I hadn't put the lemon in the pie filling!!! Fresh squeezed lemon. What a waste.I was upset about it but decided they all thought it was lemon meringue pie!
