I'm learning to laugh at myself on a daily basis. I'm a librarian (cataloger) and I love it. I have been known to cause a ruckus when necessary and make no apologies for it. I like to cook. I'm a fan of rugby (go Australian Wallabies!) and ice hockey (go Detroit Red Wings!). I own (and love) a very mouthy cat with a punk attitude.
My favorite things to cook
Soups. Stews. Breads. Vegetables. Anything that sounds tasty.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Pie. :) Thanksgiving dinner (especially the cranberry-orange relish). Pumpkin rolls. Trying new recipes (yes, this is a family cooking tradition).
My cooking triumphs
Learning my great-grandmother's perfect pie crust method. Not quite mastered it yet, but I think she'd be proud.
