City girl, now living in the country on 4 acres. Plan on raising our own laying hens, raising some goats for milk & cheese, and growing an organic garden. My mind is willing, just hope my body stays able! :o)
My favorite things to cook
Breakfasts! I'm an egg-oholic!
Always on the prowl of for healthy casseroles that freeze well.
Am enjoying trying my hand at ethnic dishes with exotic spices!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving at my mother's home. Her turkey gravy takes 2 days to make and is the most insanely delicious gravy ever. Watching mom during the last hour of it's creation is to witness alchemy genius!
My cooking tragedies
My grandma died and didn't write any of her fabulous baking recipes down. It all went with her :o(
We tried to coax the info out of her, but she never measured anything, just threw it all together with a `pinch of this and that'. Gone forever are her heavenly fritters, divinely gewy cinammon buns, soft and chewy homemade breads. Tragedy is an understatement.
