I am gratefully married to a "good guy" and am blessed with a very active 4-yr-old daughter. Over the years I've discovered how much I love to cook, especially when I need cheering up. Recently I've realized how much I enjoy crafting recipes to fit my family's lifestye and taste. I usually put on a little music - jazz, classical, hymns & praise - and let my tastebuds and imagination do the rest!
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy creating new dinner dishes and I've always loved to bake. I also enjoy grilling and trying new recipes. My favorite ingredients at dinnertime are olive oil, garlic, and fresh herbs & veggies (when I have them). And chocolate & coffee are a welcome part of my day right now.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Baking cookies on snow days. (Memories of baking with my mom - who was a teacher -on school snow days bring a smile to my face as I recreate this tradition with my own daughter).
Also, cooking "Dough Boys" & "Pudgy Pies" over the campfire - still working on making this a tradition.
