One of my favorite memories is earning my Campfire Cooking badge with my best friend, Patty. We made dinner for my entire family (3 brother, 2 sisters, Mom and Dad). It turned out well and I enjoyed the compliments. I've been cooking and baking, from scratch and box mixes ever since.
My favorite things to cook
I'm not sure I have one favorite thing to cook. My favorite thing is trying new family recipes and baking creations for friends and family. No holiday or get together seems to be complete without my broccolicauliflower casserole and cake or bar cookies. Everyone brings dishes to gatherings and the casserole is one of the most requested.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Our holiday rituals seem to be just spending time together with good food and good company. There's always plenty to eat and no one goes away hungry unless they choose to do so.
My cooking triumphs
I learned to bake cookies and "from scratch" cakes at a very young age. It was trial and error. The cookies usually turned out fantastic and my siblings loved to try what I made.
