My very first cookbook was a Betty Crocker Basics cookbook, which taught me a heck of a lot.
My favorite things to cook
Chili, Stews, and hearty soups. The Holidays are my favorite cooking times. I try new deserts and recipes on the family, LOL.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving: We generally have four generations working in the kitchen.
My cooking triumphs
I specialize in One pot wonders, LOL.
My cooking tragedies
I can't seem to make a decent cornbread dressing to save my life!
