I've enjoyed cooking ever since I was little. After I was married and had 3 boys, speed and convenience took precedence over anything else. Now that my kids are older, I've come back to home cooking and experimenting with recipes and homemade gifts.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook soups and stews in the winter, always something good on the stove. In summer, grilling and marinades are what's on the menu. Allrecipes is a great place to come find new ways to cook the old standbys.. chicken, fish, beef, etc.,
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother and grandmother were always great cooks. Traditional herbal stuffing at Thanksgiving and twisted Easter breads are just a few of the foods that remind me of childhood.
