I trust in the Lord as He has been good to me and my family. My family has never been without food, clothing or shelter and many good things have occurred in my life.
My husband and I have been married for more than 44 years. We have 5 grown children and 16 grandchildren from 3 to 21 years. We are now raising our youngest grandchild, share custody of another grandchild and do daycare for another.
Our house is always busy.
My favorite things to cook
Cooking is what I do best, except loving grandchildren.
I enjoy making chicken parmesan, chicken cordon bleu, meatloaf. I started making my own bread about 2 years ago, grinding my own flour from fresh grains. My family loves all the fresh bread.
I like making things my family enjoys.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas and Thanksgiving are our favorite cooking traditions. The family tries to get together at our house for a festive dinner, where I, the mama, grandma and chef, does most of the cooking.
My cooking triumphs
With the help of www.rouxbe.com I have mastered a delicious marinara sauce and chicken parmesan. There still lots of things I want to learn, but I have plenty of things to keep my family's taste buds tuned up.
When I can't think of a dish I want to make, my grandmother's imagination kicks in and I turn out a new dish.
My cooking tragedies
A few burned cookies! A scorched sauce! The other night I scorched 2 vegetables at the same time, but I told my family it was a new recipe and they ate it any way, without complaint.
