Take it from me..."It's never too late to learn how to cook!" I'm FINALLY figuring out food tastes better when it's NOT from a can or a box! How did we ever survive without onions and garlic in our house? God bless my husband and children for never complaining over my lack of culinary skills. I suppose the empty nest (and the grace of God) has awakened in me an interest in cooking "real" food. And who would've thought it would be FUN? Not me! But I'm having a blast learning something new each day! This website is so informative and I thank all the contributors who are teaching me how to get "out of the box" and into REAL COOKING! Now where's my spatula?! :)
My favorite things to cook
Anything that doesn't moo or oink!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making graham cracker gingerbread houses at Christmas with the children/grandchildren. This year I will attempt to bake my own gingerbread from scratch! I need to search for the perfect recipe...any suggestons???
My cooking triumphs
ROASTING BEETS and STEAMING ASPARAGUS! I'll NEVER buy the canned variety again!
My cooking tragedies
My first Easter ham that wiggled on the plate! I thought it was pre-cooked, but maybe it wasn't. Disgusting to think about even to this day! :-O
