I am an potter / jeweler and a full time Mom.
My favorite things to cook
I learned to bake when I was about 8 years old, and have loved to bake since then. Cookies and bars are a weakness, so when I make them I have to either give them away, share them with friends, or freeze them for my son to eat. They go straight to my hips!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother hated to cook, but luckily my father had good taste in 2nd and 3rd wives. They were both excellent cooks and I learned at their side.
My cooking triumphs
Both my husband and son are "careful" eaters. So, if they eat food without moving it around the plate too much, I know that I've done something tasty.
My cooking tragedies
When my husband says, "That was good, but you don't have to make it again," I know that it's a tragedy.
