I'm a 61 year old grandmother of 5. I was born in the South and was a Military Brat. We did a lot of moving and traveling. Spent many years overseas. I joined the USAF when I was 20 and almost made it a career, decided to opt out to settle in one place so I came back home.
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking everything, love a good challenge and experimenting with different spices. Cakes and casseroles would be my favorite.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Our favorite tradition was to have the kids participate with the prepping and cooking the dinners. The kids loved to make chicken gumbos on the chilly days.
My cooking triumphs
Guess I would have to say my cakes were my best features, and my casseroles came in second. My stuffed roasts were always a masterpiece.
My cooking tragedies
when I was 16 years old I made a lasagna and made such a mess making the best sauce ever. Everyone ooh and ah over the end product because it smelled and looked so good. Unfortunately, I had studied the recipe, but never read the directions on the lasagna bag! I didn't know at the time to boil the lasagna before layering.
