I started baking cookies for some little old ladies who played bridge when I was 13 years old. They paid me a dollar a month for a plate of sugar cookies. I could go to movie on that in those days.
My favorite things to cook
My first husband would not eat casseroles. After his death I married a man who loves them and I love making them.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I am always asked to make either deviled eggs, develed ham spread or a Phillipino dish called Pansit.
My cooking triumphs
No one ever turns me down when invited to dinner. And my daughters-in-law want my recipies.
My cooking tragedies
My mother died when I was 22 and I regret that I didn't think to get some of her wonderful recipies.
