    At home cook
    I'm new and have never, ever posted a "thread" before, anywhere, so please be patient. I have been cooking since I was seven. My grandmother canned vegetables, made jams and jellies and even made homemade catsup (her spelling, not mine) and Rootbeer! My Mom taught me the basics in cooking and baking and taught me how to make a pretty good cherry pie. In fact, she won the National Cherry Pie contest sponsored by Betty Crocker when she was seventeen, really, no kidding! My sister cooks and my nieces love to cook. One graduated from the California Culinary Academy and the other hopes to attend Johnson and Wales in Providence. My brother, brother-n-law and husband have serious BBQ competions. My three year old daughter already knows how to crack an egg without getting egg shell all over the place and my one year old is a professional beater licker. So you could say we are a family of cooks

    I look forward to learning more about the culinary arts!

    Thanks for your time.

    Dawne, you have quite the culinary pedigree! You must have some wonderful memories from your youth, and are giving that gift to your children as well.

We hope you explore the board! You can use the search button to find topics we've discussed in the past.
