I am a single 50 year old grandma(who passes for 38) who loves her family. I love hardware stores, doing home decor, yard sales, camping, walking, smiling, laughing, good music and I am as independent as they come. My grandchildren call me Nannos as they say that I am different from all their other friends grandmothers...I love to laugh and joke around and love life.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake but love to cook just about anything. I really enjoy cooking for a big crowd and don't usually follow recipes...although I have tried to write things down as I am cooking them as I usually get asked for recipes but don't really follow many.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cooking from scratch...hate processed foods..I even make my lemon from fresh lemons and not out of a box.
My cooking triumphs
Making some Greek food better than my friend, who is Greek.
My cooking tragedies
The first biscuits I ever made on my own when I was 9 they came out like hockey pucks...as I used 1 cup of baking powder instead of 1 TBLSP like the recipe called for...my brother said I created new cement...and called me Elly Mae for years....LOL
