I have a gluten intolerance so baking has become challenging. I am a Gramma of 7 and love it. I enjoy cooking and baking.
My favorite things to cook
I like to create my own recipes for things. I enjoy creating soups. Cream soups are the best. Veggy soup can also be fun to make.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My brothers and I grew up eating Spotted Dog. We poured Rogers Golden Syrup over it. I create my own recipes for BBQ Sauce and pretty much everything else. What I forget to do most of the time is to write these recipes down. This means I have to recreate the recipes all over again. I am getting a little better at remembering though.
My cooking triumphs
Soups, Cookies and cakes from scratch. Chocolate chip cookies are a specialty of mine as well as spice cake. I also create different fudges and other candy for Christmastime.
My cooking tragedies
Being very honest, I haven't had a major cooking/baking tragedy, "Knock on wood." I have been in the kitchen for nearly 55 years and even my phopas have tasted pretty good.
