Live 50 miles from the grocery store, 100 from the one that has a produce section! Without electricity, food storage is a big issue. My challenge is to work with shelf stable ingredients.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake: healthy bars, chocolate chip cookies, xmas candy, whole grain yeast breads and muffins.
My favorite ingredients to work with are natural sweeteners, wild fruits and berries, and the yeast/gluten combo!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I grew up on homemade tortillas, spanish rice, hamburger soup, and stir fries.
My cooking triumphs
Almost all!! I love cooking meals like thanksgiving and xmas, and baking super yummy goodies with simple ingredients.
My cooking tragedies
echhh, one time I made a "Chinese Dish" with cream of mushroom soup(gag)- out of an old VFW cookbook. We still laugh about that one!!
