My favorite things to cook
I'm more of a baker than a cook. While my mother was best at making pies I find myself drawn more towards cakes, cookes and other desserts.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas cookie day. My mother, sister and I used to take a day to do this. After our mother passed away we continued it and have somehow managed to add more cookies and people to our lists :)
My cooking triumphs
Cooking a 52 lb. homegrown turkey!
My cooking tragedies
Making chocolate chip pie and having to make 5 crusts to get it right or possibley the apple bread that was in fact a brick substitute
