I love to cook because it is one of the quickest ways to create and share. My mother and my brother have been my greatest influences. My brother is a 5 hat chef. I made a Hobo meal one day that he complimented and I beamed!
My favorite things to cook
I love to make jams and jellies. I love to freeze fresh peas, beans, tomatoes. I also love to try new recipes and I have a few comfort food recipes that are to die for.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Pineapple Dressing(recipe being considered for publication here)
My dad used to make popcorn in a pan in the kitchen while we danced around and sang to the Elvis Christmas Album.
