I love to cook, it makes me feel good to see people enjoy my food. My greatest influence was my mother in law. God rest her soul. She was a great cook, and now I cook for her son and husband.They both love my cooking.
My favorite things to cook
I love baking cookies for the holidays, my husband thinks I could sell my cookies. I don't know if I have the time to bake for others, I work 50 hours a week. I'm lucky I get my baking done. But I give them as gifts and everyone enjoys them. I have a cold dough recipe with vanilla ice cream in it, its the best, very flaky.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I make spaghetti dinner every sunday for my father in law, He is a very happy man on Sundays.
My cooking tragedies
The first Thanksgiving after my mother in law passed away, I made the turkey, well I forgot to take out the bag with the gizzard and stuff in it. It hasn't happened since, I've cooked for thanksgiving for 15 years now. I haven't heard any complaints.
