I live in a cabin on Hood Canal on the Olympic Peninsula and have a bead business called MsBijouxBeads.com. I love to hike in the mountains and bike on the backroads. I have traveled the world and love visiting markets and trying new food and spices. Lately I have a renewed interest in baking, may be my new kitchen or eating more meals at home.
My favorite things to cook
Right now cooking with vegetables and a renewed interest in baking. Making a good bbq shortrib
My favorite family cooking traditions
Lately I have been trying sugar cookie recipes, trying to re-create the ones from my childhood.
My cooking triumphs
Making a perfect sugar cookie last week-end. I didn't know it until I made another batch yesterday and they didn't taste as good.
