Wife and mom to two teenagers who love to eat! Trying to cook healthier meals.
My favorite things to cook
Love canning but struggle to get it done in the fall. My absolute favorite recipe is a "sparkling" strawberry cranberry jam, as it uses frozen berries and can be canned in the winter to give as gifts. I also like to bake, particularly chocolate chip banana bread muffins.
My cooking tragedies
Once, as a teen, I made two lovely apple pies in glass dishes. Good idea - put a cookie sheet underneath to prevent any overflow burning in the oven. Bad idea - transport the dish on the cookie sheet to the oven! The dish slipped off, broke into tiny shards (ruining the pie), and even broke a tile in the floor. I just sat and cried. Fortunately, I still had the second pie, which turned out nicely!
