My Greatest Cooking TriumphBeing a runner-up in Taste of Home's recipe contest! I was so excited! Later, I won a 3rd place and $200 and then another runner-up and $25.00! I couldn't believe they wanted to PAY me for my recipe! I framed the recipes and hung them in my kitchen.
I have 14 recipes published in Reman Magazines.
My Biggest Kitchen DisasterI was about 13, and my mother was in the hospital. I had been cooking all the meals- mostly sandwiches. One evening , I decided to surprise everyone and make a tuna hotdish (we lived in Minnesota). I followed my mothers recipe to the letter, including the TWO TABLESPOONS OF PEPPER! Of course no one could eat it, it was too hot. We had sandwiches again that night! Later, we went to visit my mother at the hospital. I was still crying when I told her I had followed the recipe exactly! She then told me the two tablespoons of pepper was two tablespoons of CHOPPED GREEN PEPPER!
My Food For ThoughtLife is too short! Have more fun because "Everyday Is A Holiday"! We celebrate every holiday we can think of in our home and I make the food to go with it. We celebrate King Kamehameha Day on June 11 with Pineapple Glazed Porkchops, Bob Marley's Birthday on February 6 with Jerk Chicken, Mexican Independence Day on September 16 with Chicken Fajitas, and many many more. I try to make life FUN!
My InterestsCooking of course, sewing, quilting.
