Mom started letting me cook some easy things when I was about 8 years old so I guess I've been cooking for something like 45 years.
My favorite things to cook
I really love cooking "comfort foods" which explains that extra 15 pounds that I don't need to be wearing, haha.
But I also grow a nice vegetable garden every year and make use of all those wonderful veggies by grilling,steaming,roasting and eating fresh straight from garden to table.
My favorite family cooking traditions
All of my family cooking traditions center around the holidays and now that Mom is gone, I've pretty much taken over having the family over for holiday feasts.
My cooking triumphs
Mastering pieroghies made from scratch...with three types of filling!
My homemade lasagna, sausage stuffing, chicken caccitore,chili,spinach stuffed chicken breasts ,vegetable soup, and cranberry orange relish sre all to die for and I really should go ahead and post those recipes but it seems like there are already some many recipes for those things.
My cooking tragedies
Just about every dinner I made for my first husband for the first 6 months of marriage at the ripe old age of 18!
