I started cooking when I joined a 4-H club in the third grade. Entered many food items at the county fair. I am from a family of many expert level cooks that taught me many tidbits along the way. I have been married for 29 years this December, and have 2 daughters. I Love cooking for other people. I used to dream about having a small restaurant, but that hand in my life wasn't to be. I love teaching others though some of the tricks in cooking to get a better result.
My favorite things to cook
Holiday meals starting with Thanksgiving.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I try to remember favorite foods that family and friends enjoy, and always include a couple of them on the menu.
My cooking tragedies
Have only had a couple, thankfully. One time, I tried making a dessert in a crock pot. It was a total disaster that it had to get tossed. I am still not a fan of the crock pot. It has a place in my life for only a few recipes like a beef chuck roast, pulled pork and cream of chicken wild rice soup.
