A great grandma, still cooking

Hi! I am SO happy to be part of this group. I am a great grandma and I still LOVE to cook. I am sure there is still plenty to learn so I am always on the lookout for new and different ways to make cooking as enjoyable as it was in the days I was making after school snacks every day for a bunch of hungry kids just off the bus after a long day at our country school! I still love to cook the way I did 'back in the day' and am challenged by cooking a great, satisfying meal with a pantry that looks similiar to Mother Hubbard's!! I love making my own mixes and using the old substitutions I had to learn when we had to drive 20 miles to get a loaf of bread! Looking forward to learning lots of new things here.

Thanks, Sweetie!

That's about how I did it ... a little of this and a pinch of that! My son once asked me if a tad was the same thing as a smidgen!! I still love cooking like that! Sometimes brings a surprise though!!!
