I remember the 50's.
Have been cooking since I was a kid. Love to experiment with food and try new things but have to watch what I eat now--the "if it tastes good spit it out diet". I just hate the cleaning up after.
We're moving from the beach to the GA. foothills and closer to Atlanta. Most retirees do it the other way.
My favorite things to cook
Lousy baker--no desserts or bread from scratch.
To cook--whatever strikes my imagination.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Having Christmas dinner on Christmas Eve. Everybody knows where the leftovers are and Mom can take it easy and enjoy the holiday too.
My cooking triumphs
Thanksgiving dinner for 14--everything turned out perfect, for once.
My cooking tragedies
Not wearing glasses when I made a pot of chili-- I "dumped" in cayenne pepper not chili powder.
Making my mothers gingerbread and using self-rising flour. I never told her about that.
