I have always loved to cook/bake. I am a sweet nut. I am self taught as my Mom did not have an interest in cooking. So when I married I was hardly able to boil water.
My favorite things to cook
I am known for my desserts. However I love to make any type of roast with all the fixin's.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I have a special cookie recipe I do several holiday's of the year in different shapes for the season.They are a rolled butter cookie-- the frosting and decoration make them special.
Everyone ask for them and this pleases me.
My cooking triumphs
In 2004 I won first prize in the 100 year bicentennial in the town of Madison Maine for my Blueberry Pie. This was an awesome experience for me.
My cooking tragedies
Once making bread somehow the lamp above the counter broke and fell crashing into my rising bread. Glass everywhere. So there was no homemade bread that day.
