Live on a small ranch w/husband, son and daughter. Have a great garden, fruit trees, all kinds of animals. Love my fresh eggs and will soon be trying my hand at cheesemaking. The goats have to kid first.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook anything in my big old farmhouse kitchen, especially breads. I love to bake and can. I also like creating my own new recipes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My children stand on chairs across the counter from me and watch while I cook. It's like our own little cooking show.
My cooking triumphs
Gosh. I had to make homemade mayonaise on the spur of the moment on Thanksgiving eve. First thing that came to mind.
My cooking tragedies
My very first cheesecake. While in college, I made it for a boyfriend. I forgot to turn down the oven after the initial high temp setup. Needless to say, it was burned. The boyfriend, jerk, threw it out on the driveway!
