My late husband was my biggest fan of my cooking, as well as my children requesting their favorites. We lived in Massachusetts and Texas and food interests everywhere in the world we traveled were always a joy. The most fantastic cook and teacher was my mother and some of her sisters - she had 7.I also learned other things from very special ladies in our past. I am putting together/writing/typing a family cookbook with treasured recipes from over 100 years ago up to 'today'. It is a labor of love.
My favorite things to cook
Spaghetti sauce, meatballs, chicken dishes, turkey, ham, beef, casseroles, old time favorites of Norwegian and Scottish dishes, pies, cakes, tarts, salads.
