About Me
Well, I'm a Boise, Idaho transplanted native originally from California. I grew up in San Jose until the 4th grade then the folks mover to the Turlock/Delhi area; about 80 miles south os Sacramento. I definitely believe there is still a lot of Californai Girl in me, but I do love Idaho. I am the mother of 2 and grandmother of 3. I like to read, Oh, especially old English Poetry. Lordy, I just melt when I read one of Shakespeare's sonnets or John Donne's poetry and Lord Byron. I enjoy sewing, crocheting, and quilting. I think life is taken way too seriously; sure there are serious things in life, but you still need to laugh. I also wish the world could just be one big "Brady Bunch". I am a hopeless optimist and figure things could be worse. And, I think everyday has the ability to be a good day. If you woke up alive and everyone you care about woke up alive then, it's a good day. Geeze, even a broken clock is right twice.
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy cooking challenging things. Not the every day stuff that you can do blindfolded. And I love to make my dishes look good. I'm not sure I have favorites. During the winter I like to make what I call one pan dinners. Stews, soups and things in large bubbly pans.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family doesn't have any long standing traditions but my husbands family does and I have, with the help of my sainted mother-in-law and sweetheart husband, learned to cook some of them. When his family gets together for the holidays, I love to help my sisters-in-law make the dinner. They are all German Mennonite and I love their traditions. They make dished for the holidays that they made before they came to America. That's cool.
My cooking triumphs
Having my mother-in-law ask me to bring a family favorite to a large family Christmas gathering when everyone else was raised in a German Mennonite commuinty and grew up with the food and I didn't.
My cooking tragedies
Somehow, I always seem to set fire to something during the holidays. It's usually the sweet potatoes either before they go into the oven or the marshmellows when I am going to toast them.
