I'm a preschool teacher and also a medical coder.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake, especially cookies and quick breads, and make microwave candy.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Shortbread cookies and fruitcake at Christmas, my mom's apple pie with Cheddar cheese, and her homemade lemon curd. I'm fortunate to have a mom who loves to cook and passed down that love.
My cooking triumphs
I am the best cookie baker in the world, according to my brother!
My cooking tragedies
When I first started cooking, a long time ago, I used paprika instead of cinnamon in an apple crisp (the containers were identical). I caught the mistake, fortunately. I also haven't mastered yeast breads yet...but mine make great doorstops! :)
