mom of 2 grown boys who survived an abusive ex-husband. Now living with my "Mr. Perfect" with our cat Baby, and I am on disability with severe chronic pain. Worked as a Special Needs Teachers Assistant for 18 years. After that I was working at New Bedford Standard Times as a Customer Service Rep in Readers Services Dept, BUT my job was outsourced to the Philipinnes.I now suffer from some chronic pain issues. Not very much fun but I take it as it is. I tried to put in my own photo but they were all 'too big' according to this.
My favorite things to cook
I will cook anything. Nothing is off limits to me. Lasagna is my specialty. I make a perfect meatloaf. As me to make something and I can as long as I have some sort of basic recipe to give me a way to go by.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving Turkey...Spiral Ham, which turns into Pea Soup. I make my own French Meat Pie, from the crust up.
My cooking triumphs
The French Meat Pie has to be my prize. I've had people tell me they are better that any of the pies they get in bakeries or restaraunts. THAT recipe is one I figured out all by myself & is NOT to be shared...
My cooking tragedies
peanut butter cookies I simply can not get those darn things right.
