Well, I live in Bozeman, Montana with my wonderful boyfriend Bob and my 13 year-old yellow lab named Trazzy. I love to explore the surronding mountains and rivers, as well as camp and fish, and I have recntly taken up yoga and horseback riding.
My favorite things to cook
I am on a Mexican kick, it's so easy to whip up on a busy weeknight! I also love creating hearty winter meals in the slow cooker. Living in Montana, I have become good at cooking all kinds of meat, including bison, elk, venison, and duck.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Seafood! I am originally from Maine, where seafood can be found in abundance. My father is a master seafood chef, and he is also a master hamburger griller - his are the best hands down!
My cooking triumphs
Most of the recipes I find here are fantastic! The cranberry roast in the slow-cooker, carrot cream cheese muffins, steamed mussels, and various stir-frys have all been big hits at our house!
My cooking tragedies
The day I forgot to add the egg and the vanilla to the sugar cookies I was attempting...I wondered why they were so dry!
