Single,mother of two grown daughters,have 2 teenage grandchildren and a little girl on the way.
Avid biker since age 16.
Love reading,gathering recipes and seeing people enjoy what I cook.
My favorite things to cook
Mexican dishes, especially soups. I make tortillas and tamales. I am learning to cook Thai and Vietnamese dishes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I was raised in Oklahoma by German,Irish and Native Indian relatives. Our style of cooking was a blend of all these type of dishes. My German relatives were Amish and Black Dutch so our family dishes reflected this heritage.
Scrapple,chipped beef and gravy over toast anyone?
My cooking triumphs
Making really good tamales.
Finding old time comfort food recipes of my ancestors like fry bread, hot water bread,homemade noodles. And canning meats like my grandmother did.
My cooking tragedies
I had not made a pie crust in so long that I tried to make an apple pie recently. And it was AWFUL!!!!
Got to get my skills back that my grandmother taught me.
