I am retired after 44 years. I have been married 47 years to my best friend Mike. I have 2 daughters and 5 grandchildren and 2 step grandchildren. I am a christian and enjoy cooking at church and for my family and friends.
My favorite things to cook
Chocolate Chip cookies
Fresh pumpkin pies
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving with all the trimmings. I can't take anything away from our first Thanksgiving meal together but they do let me add some things occasionally. My children live out-of-town, but when we do have Thanksgiving at their house we still have the traditional meal.
My cooking triumphs
Collard greens. Everyone raves about my collard greens and I love to share them at our church events.
My cooking tragedies
Biscuits. When I was 12 I started cooking for my family because both my parents worked. I have two brothers and I decided to make biscuits. They looked like wafers and you could have broken the windows if you thru them out. My daddy threatened them with a stick if they laughed or committed about my biscuits. Eventually I mastered the biscuits.
