A writer, artist in most ways. Love to try new things and have even made up some recipe's just as to how I'm feeling...loads of fun and usually always turns out wonderful
My favorite things to cook
Vegetarian and baked deserts. I love to create.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every April Fools day my mom would have pancakes; but for my dad, she would cut a piece of cloth just smaller than his pancake and put more batter on top as to cover the cloth. She would fry the pancake like usual. When our dad would cut into his pancake all the kids would giggle around the table and he'd act like it was the first time it was ever done to him.... We all got to shout "April Fools!" I sure miss that time with my dad and my mom for thinking of doing that to him. I think about that every April Fools Day.
My cooking triumphs
Making my mom's Pumpkin Pie (her special recipe) every Thanksgiving and Christmas. I have even mastered that recipe without eggs and it's just as good.
My cooking tragedies
When I first got married (I won't tell you how many years ago) and I was making Spaghetti, I went to drain the water out of the hot boiling noodle pan by putting the lid just a wee bit away from the edge and started to pour the water off....the whole lid slipped off and down into the sink went the whole pot of noodles. I started cooking the noodles from the beginning again and when I went to pour off the water again, the lid slipped off again and down the sink went the noodles and water. UGH!! So, I did it again only this time I succeeded but after that, I found a colander and haven't been without one ever since.
