Now in my 60's, I enjoy being an old fashioned Grandmother who bakes.
My favorite things to cook
Bread baking! Whole grain breads, sourdough breads,
baguettes, and, of course, pizza!
I am always happy to share some "starter" and help a fledgling bread baker gain confidence.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Holiday baking and meal preparation together is wonderful. All three of my adult children are great cooks and we love making our traditional favorites or trying something new.
Our outdoor wood-fired oven is used 2-3 times a week producing great breads, pizza and calzone.
My cooking triumphs
Any holiday meal in which the timing works well and all dishes are on the table at serving time is triumph enough!
My cooking tragedies
My early bread baking efforts produced a number of "door stops."
Most bread "mistakes" are edible, even if it is just in the form of homemade croutons or bread crumbs.
Occasionally, the wild birds get a treat!
Don't worry.....learn from the mistake and try again!
