I don't know if I am doing this right because this is my first blog!  Gertrude is my Grandma's name and everyone says I am her reincarnated. 
  We just had 16 people over for Abby's 14th birthday party and it was a success!  I picked up 10lbs of flat iron steaks from MK meats in Unadilla and rubbed them down with my special meat rub.  Then Joe cooked them slow over a wood fire and sliced them into strips for sandwiches!  WOW!!!!!!!!  They were so tender and flavorful.  I served them with mac and cheese, and cowboy beans.  I also included cheeseburgers and hot dogs for those too small to appreciate good steak.  I made a lemon cake and homemade lemon ice cream for dessert.  Fantastic Stuff!

Ditto, RnR's comments. You'll find your own style. Sounds like you throw a great party, too.

About Me
I learned to cook watching my mom and my Grandma's cook - who all are the best in the world! I have huge garden and I can a lot of stuff for winter. My daughter would'nt dream of eating a pie that was store bought! And we raise chickens. There is nothing that compares to farm fresh eggs. They just make your baked goods taste better.
My favorite things to cook
Comfort food! If it's fattening, chocolate or salty I'm in! I love to take leftovers and transform them into something wow!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom always made sugar cookies with us kids at Christmas time and do the same thing now! I used to love to pick out a recipe and Mom would let me got to town in the kitchen! At Christmas I also make tons of candy's, breads, and cookies that I give away to neighbors and family for gifts.
My cooking triumphs
I love to enter canned goods and baked goods in the county fair! I have won quite a few ribbons! I recently had a recipe published in Nebraska Life Magazine's cookbook. I was so excited.
My cooking tragedies
One time I tried to make pierogies when I was about 15. Well I didn't realize how much a cast iron skillet would smoke when it got hot! I ended up filling the house with a lovely smokey aroma! I never have made them again! Another time I tried to make chicken satay, and my husband and daughter about gagged when they tried the sauce. As they said peanut butter doesn't go with chicken! But I loved it. They were scraping the sauce off the chicken. They won't let me live that one down!
