self employed SBO. in my spare time I love to exercise, Cross-fit, walking & biking, work in the yard, decorate, bake, and create new dishes.
My favorite things to cook
Cookies, I enjoy the Science behind making the Perfect cookie. also fresh salads are a favorite. Love to roast Veggies, as well as grill them!
My favorite family cooking traditions
coming from a large family, we served roasted dinners family style and loved to grill & picnic on the farm. it was a challenge for me to cook for 2 when I was first married
My cooking triumphs
I'm pretty proud of many recipes, especially an Excellent Chocolate Chip Toffee recipe I feel is perfect. Lasagna, and quick grilled sandwiches
My cooking tragedies
after mastering a microwave peanut brittle, I thought I could save time and make Anise candy the same way but bringing that much sugar to hard crack at that high rate is a tragedy. the perfect Anise candy takes about 45 minutes of stirring ;/
