I love to cook healthy meals, but being a working woman, I never had time for elaborate meals on weekdays. I mainly stick to simple, quick recipes with few quality ingredients, and save the fancy dishes for the weekend or special occasions.
My favorite things to cook
Bread. I love healthy whole grain breads and am constantly on the lookout for new bread machine recipes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I look forward to the summer when my organic garden is bursting with fresh vegetables and herbs. I have a large family and several members get together at my kitchen to make and can my "famous" salsa (this year over 200 pints which I sell and give away as gifts.
My cooking triumphs
I have one recipe, a to-die-for coconut cream pie, which I guard with my life. This is definitely not my usual healthy recipe, but I do have my weaknesses.
My cooking tragedies
Dropping my sister's strawberry pie on the floor at a family gathering. No, Cindy, I did not do that on purpose.
