I grew up on a farm in southern WI and really miss the country life. I love to be in my flower garden or out in the woods.
My favorite things to cook
Desserts will always be my favorite things to cook. But I am trying hard to make the old favorite dinners more healthy by being more knowledgeable about what goes into each dish.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My favorite tradition is cooking the turkey on Thanksgiving and/or Christmas for my family, which is getting larger as we speak. I delegate some of the side dishes but always be sure to have homemade cranberry sauce, gravy and stuffing along with mashed potatoes and lots of pie.
My cooking triumphs
Any time I get asked for the recipe I consider it a triumph.
My cooking tragedies
Forgetting to start cooking a very large pan of potatoes one Thanksgiving for my extended family. They were very patient as our meal was a little late.
