I live in southern AZ, and look forward to each next gardening season. This past summer’s garden was mainly tomatoes, peppers and herbs. We had some strawberries, spinach, watermelons, and onions, but much from those. I love cooking healthy meals with LOTS of veggies. Eating healthy is very important to my husband and I and we love using our organic homegrown veggies for every meal of the day.
My favorite things to cook
Speggettie (with homegrown tomatoes and basil), Guacamole, and Soups.
My favorite family cooking traditions
German Christmas cookies, Thanksgiving of course, and my mom letting us lick the bowl of batter after she was done.
My cooking triumphs
I have become very health conscious in my cooking. I grew eating heavy German meals and a lot of sweets. So that is a definite triumph.
My cooking tragedies
Although I grew up in a German house, and my mother baked non-stop, I'm a terrible baker. I seem to mess up all the time when it comes to cookies, cakes or pastries.
