I'm a wife of 42 yrs, a grandma, and a great-grandmother.
My favorite things to cook
Cakes, pies, cobbler's, any comfort food, crock pot meals, baked meals. Anything with potatoes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We have ham and turkey every Christmas, with home made bread, even though it is just my husband and me eating it. I make pumpkin bread and pies, the same thing every year, so I guess you could call them traditional. I have always cooked big meals for my family on Thanksgiving and Christmas, so it's been challenging to cook for two but still love doing it.
My cooking triumphs
I made an Italian cheesecake and it was sooooo good. My husband asks me every once in a while if I would make him another one. I mentioned it recently so may do it. Great success!
My cooking tragedies
I know I've surely got some but can't think of any.
