About this Cook
in the last few years i've moved toward more healthful, non-processed and traditional foods, as shown in the Nourishing Traditions cookbook. i use a lot of fermentation methods in my foods and beverages! :)
My favorite things to cook
i most enjoy making nourishing soups from homemade bone broth, homemade yogurt and other dairy products, variations of sourdough breads and creating traditional, nutrient-dense spins on classic fave dishes!
My cooking triumphs
learning how to make KILLER gravy! haha! especially handy for becoming an expert at one of my fave dishes--sausage gravy (w/biscuits, of course!).
My cooking tragedies
still have not mastered the final rising of all my bread recipes...i dont know if i'm not patient enough to let it rise long enough or if the conditions i have it in just arent ideal! my rolls and breads tend to turn out much more flat than they should. still learning! :)

Spanakopita (Greek Spinach Pie)
this is one of my new fave foods! :):) and what an excellent way to use up all the greens i get each week from my CSA share. the only things i did different was used a little chard in addition to the spinach, and used 8 sheets of phyllo on the bottom and 6 on the top. i also threw in a little bit of fresh basil and oregano. it was PERFECT! hubby and i ate it 3 breakfasts in a row and it was excellent reheated in the toaster oven.

Irish Potato Candy
i actually halved the confectioner's sugar and they were a perfect consistency (just barely sticky, but it helped the cinnamon to stay on!). i think they would have been WAY too sweet with the total 4 cups of the c-sugar. i took them to our neighbor's for a corn beef & cabbage party for St. Patty's my surprise they were devoured! i drew a cute little sign to stick out of the bowl they were in saying they were Irish "potatoes." it really drew in the crowd--cracked me up to see people's reaction to the strange-looking "candy." hehe! many people asked for the recipe--they were definitely a hit :)
