I am a happily single late 50ish female that lives alone with my dogs, the ones that keep me busy. I do like to cook, but it can be challenging when it's just you . So I do lots of cooking for friends and neighbors.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake best. And that means the things that aren't good for you, like cakes, pies, cookies, candies, lol.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I am of Polish ancestry, so homemade potato pancakes, anything with sour cream.
My cooking triumphs
Pies, I've always been able to make pretty good pies. My Mom loves my crust and I figured out why mine come out so well, it's because I'm always in a hurry and do them so fast they come out well, cuz the less you touch the dough the better.
My cooking tragedies
LOL, Speaking of pies, years ago, when I was in high school, I misread the recipe and put a cup of flour instead of a TB in with the fruit. I couldn't figure out why their was no juices bubbling over, until I cut into it, ugh.
