I am a chorus teacher who loves life! Recently I was diagnosed with a blood clotting disorder and put on a restricted sodium diet by my doctor's. So, I am now constantly trying to find tasty new ways to cook with very low salt.
My favorite things to cook
I love the tasty southern style comfort dishes my mother made for the family while I was growing up. I also love different ethnic foods. Now the trick for me is cooking these things with reduced sodium content.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making Christmas candies and treats! Baking peach cobbler on the occasional Sunday afternoon. Pork and sauerkraut for good luck in the New Year.
My cooking triumphs
When I make pumpkin bread that even my own mother says is the best she had ever had - better even than her mother's. In my family, that's saying a lot.
My cooking tragedies
Making chili that was so spicy that it was inedible even for the bravest of spice-lovers' taste buds!
