About this Cook
I am the mother of two boys and a wife to a wonderful man. They love to eat and I love to keep them trying new things.
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking anything. I don't think there is anything I wouldn't try. From traditional suppers to fancy dinner parties. I love to bake as well and truely enjoy it when my boys get involved with it.
My cooking triumphs
I have MS, which makes it hard sometimes to be able to hold onto everything that is involved in cooking. My kids often help me stir/mix/pour/shake. I know I have done justice by them when they come into the kitchen to help without being asked. I now know that someday when they are grown, they too will not just know how, but enjoy making great food for them and their families!
My cooking tragedies
Oh sheesh! What have I made that hasn't had a tragedy now and then? Something always goes awry when a person is in the kitchen.

Sourdough Starter II
I love the simplisity of this. It smells stronger the longer you leave it. I have to say that I am new to making sourdough.
