Mother of two sons and Nana to four grandchildren. Have always enjoyed cooking, but now that I'm retired, I have more time to plan and prepare. I love the allrecipes site and tend to use one of its recipes every night for dinner.
My favorite things to cook
I really enjoy making soups. The amazing recipes for soups on allrecipes are a big hit in my home.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love learning some of my mom's recipes from when I was growing up. Her and I have spent time together baking and cooking some of my favorite dishes from childhood.
My cooking triumphs
I have served some fantastic pork tenderloin dishes for guests, but I still enjoy preparing a turkey dinner with all the fixings.
My cooking tragedies
Eight girlfriends for dinner and I burned the pork tenderloin on the grill. From then forward, I stick with either the oven or slow cooker, which I can manage.
