Very busy wife and full time employee, mommy to 5 spoiled rotten cats and 3 spoiled hound dogs.
My favorite things to cook
Cheesecake, hamburgers, lasagna, one dish casseroles, corn fed beef, Mema's Broccoli casserole and thanksgiving stuffing.
My favorite family cooking traditions
One year we ran out of bread for our stuffing, so I had to improvise and use Rye bread. It was so good that now every Thanksgiving we use Rye bread and caraway in our stuffing. MeMa's broccoli casserole is a staple of each holiday meal.
My cooking triumphs
Winning 2 cookie contests against quite accomplished cooks. My winners were Reese's cookies, my sugar cookies and my gingersnaps. But, really just having the time to cook a nice family meal is my greatest cooking triumph!
My cooking tragedies
When I was 19, I made a recipe on the back of some canned white turkey meat that called for grapes and mayo.... oh boy.... my Xhubbie never let me forget it. Probably, why he's my X LOL!
