About this Cook
I am a very hands-on kind of person who loves to get creative with everything.
My favorite things to cook
I love to try new recipes & learn new things. My current focus is learning to can & preserve.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom has always been a home cooked meal mom & got us all cooking really early. :) One of my most treasured memories is baking cookies with Mom & being so short I needed a chair to pull up & turn the oven on. Also starting at around 10/11yrs old Mom would let us have control over what we wanted to eat for dinner. We would get a budge, have to do the grocery shopping & we cooked it all ourselves & planned it all out so that dinner was on time. The most fun & taught us to appreciate cooking & the cook, as well as all the steps involved in a delicious meal.
My cooking triumphs
This last year I went & picked over 40lbs of fresh berries & canned them all :) So much work & so much delicious jam :)
My cooking tragedies
I tried to make some chocolate truffles & for some reason could NOT seem to melt the chocolate. I've done it a million times before no problem but of course if you are making christmas candies EVERYTHING burns :P Lost about 2lbs of chocolate
