Moved from sea level to almost 10,000 ft high in the Andes mountains. I have lived for a year without an oven, just cooking with a gas stove top, bread machine, and slow cooker. Once I get an oven, then the high altitude baking experiments will begin!
My favorite things to cook
I love food!!! Probably why I do a round of HCG annually to keep my weight in check. We love to cook Thai food, stir fry, New Mexican food, I make an awesome lasagna and spaghetti using nothing from a can, love to bake, but that has been on hold until we get an oven.
My cooking triumphs
Learned to alter my cooking to use what's available in this country and use only fresh ingredients, since anything canned is imported and crazy expensive.
My cooking tragedies
Used my sister's oven for my first batch of high altitude cookies...wow, I didn't know it was even possible to mess up cookies, but I did it!
