I work all week as a customer service person for a major company. I am involved with my kids and family.
My favorite things to cook
My family favorites, tator tot casserole cheese carrots, Turkey on the Grill, and cookies and desserts!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Aunt Nancy's Baked Beans, always a favorite, Pasta Salad that never has leftovers, a holiday is never complete without cheese carrots either.
My cooking triumphs
Grilling is rewarding, but out triumphs have been in campfire cooking. It is always fun to watch the campers around us waft closer when we make stew on the campfire, and cakes in the ashes. Blueberry lemon has been a favorite! We are never afraid to experiment and the feel of pioneer spirit makes me so proud.
My cooking tragedies
As an 18 yr old new bride, I thought I was ready to make my first ham. After carefully peeling back all the plastic and dressing it, cooking it and basting it, I discovered there was another layer of packaging(waxy paper)! LOL
