I am a make from scratch girl when it comes to cooking and baking. This way I know what's in the foods I and others are eating. I like to grow things like flowers and vegetables and herbs. In the fall I do some canning and freezing.
My favorite things to cook
A few of the things I like to cook is lasagna, casseroles, nachos and chili and other comfort foods. I love baking for others too.
My favorite family cooking traditions
As I think back, I'm remembering bean soup, chicken n dumplings, rice pudding, fruit salad, church window candies.
My cooking triumphs
One of my great successes is yeast bread. LOL I will never forget my first try at making bread. It turned out hard on the outside and doughy on the inside. That was 34 years ago.
My cooking tragedies
My first try at making yeast bread, cookies in which I forgot the sugar. My grandmother said she liked them so my feelings wouldn't be hurt lol.
