Hi, I live in small town USA. I love to cook and share. My very fussy family won't eat leftovers, even when I call them planned overs, so off they go to an unsuspecting victim. Nobody ever says no, and I always get my serving dishes back.
If you think your dishes will not be returned, buy extras at thrift stores, garage sales,flea markets. I have people save plastic take a way trays and reuse them. I these are the ones I always get back. No one I know says ooooo a plastic tray I must have it for my very own.
Food Network ROCKS!
My favorite things to cook
I'm still sitting here trying to narrow my options...REQUESTS! I'm all about that!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Taking over my mother's kitchen for huge holiday feasts! I even clean up the mess so she can relax and enjoy time with her great grandkids.
My cooking triumphs
Getting a very picky woman at work to say I'm the best cook in the place. Humm I know how the others cook, I'm not sure if she meant it as a compliment to me or a dig at our co-workers.
My cooking tragedies
Let's just say it involved a #10 tin can of potatoes, a holiday, and my daughter's new boyfriend.
