My favorite things to cook
I love to cook from recipes that have been either handed down from my relatives or passed along from dear friends. Food for the body and soul...
My favorite family cooking traditions
We always have chili on Christmas Eve with birthday cake for dessert. My mom always mixes up these HUGE batches of cornbread dressing for Thanksgiving (usually in a washtub) and freezes about half of it.
My cooking triumphs
Whenever I gather with my cooking buddies for our once-a-month freezer cooking marathon, I always have adventurous new recipes (usually from this website).
I always feel successful when I can pull a tasty meal out of a not-so-well stocked pantry--like when some friends were visiting from out of town and got snowed in with us. My planned meals ran out and we were able to come up with made-to-order omelets for everyone with whatever was on hand.
My cooking tragedies
I make a really lousy cup of coffee--always either too strong or too weak or it has a pile of grounds in the bottom of the cup.
