My favorite things to cook
I am primarily a baker. I bake everything from lean wild yeast breads to sour cream coffee cakes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love spicy food and quite a few of the ethnic cooking styles and flavors from around the world.
My cooking triumphs
I have been making chocolate chip cookies and brownies from scratch since I was 10 years old and have perfected the recipes. I also have been making Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners since I was about 15 - which was a huge help when I finally left home.
My cooking tragedies
It's never a good idea to try out a new recipe, or alter a favorite recipe, on people you don't know.....
