I'm a farm girl. Grew up on a dairy farm, now married to a hog and sheep farmer. Guess what we raise? Cows, Hogs and Sheep. We sell our meat products at food co-ops and farmers markets. Always loved to cook and bake, and now so do our 3 children. Fresh, local products are the way to go, great flavor, fresh and healthy.
My favorite things to cook
I can cook about anything, especially love to grill. I was a waitress while in college and learned how to make some great dishes, even Steak Diane ! I think my steaks are the best and some of the soups I make are so good. I have been experimenting with different lamb recipes lately. We sell lamb and my cooking knowledge of this meat is limited, but I've found some great recipes on this site.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love cooking with my daughter, although sometimes it's hard to slow down and take the time. But , I realized recently that she's pretty good at helping so now I have her help chop up ingredients and we make dinner together. I think the best part is tasting what's cooking !
My cooking triumphs
Won first place at a burger cook off, made Pizza Burgers. They are really good.
My cooking tragedies
I can make great apple pie BUT have a hard time making the crust. I seems to end up witha crust that tears easy, I think it's too dry. It still tastes good, but hard to work with.
