I admit, I had no interest in learning how to cook while growing up. Instead of in the kitchen with my mom or Mimi, I was always outside helping my dad and Granddaddy! That or curled up somewhere lost in a good book! Sure, there was the occasional cracking eggs for my dad when he made brownies and then I started baking my dad’s birthday cake each year oh and macaroni and cheese but really, that was about it. Everyone felt sorry for my husband when we got married haha! Luckily, he knows how to cook and over the years, I have discovered that I love to bake. As for cooking, well let’s just say I have to have my crock-pot! I did teach myself to make our family’s traditional dressing for the holidays and I have gotten a little braver in the kitchen. As Abby gets older, she shows more interest in learning to cook so she’s now often helping out in the kitchen. Some recipes are okay but others we truly enjoy and those are the ones that we will share with all of you!
