I'm a writer who walks Labrador retrievers to stretch her advances after happily leaving the world of publishing. I try to stick to a strict weighed & measured food plan with no sugar & no flour -- not always successfully but I keep trying anyway.
My favorite things to cook
Having said I try to avoid sugar & flour, I'm a terrific baker. My specialties, however, have become vegetables. Not vegetarian: vegetables. When I'm adhering to my food plan, I eat many, many vegetables.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas cookies, especially roll-out sugar cookies. Christmas tea breads as gifts. Mincemeat pies at Thanksgiving & Christmas, with venison mincemeat. We owned an orchard for many years so we canned a lot of fruit, made jams & pies.
