I’m learning to laugh at myself on a daily basis. I’m a librarian (cataloger) and I love it. My job involves all things metadata related in any and all formats. I have been known to cause a ruckus when necessary (aka troublesome cataloger) and make no apologies for it. I have a passion for continuing education and teaching. I’m a newbie coder (still learning). I love to cook. I’m a fan of rugby (go Australian Wallabies!) and ice hockey (go Detroit Red Wings!). I’m car-free and bike/walk a lot. I’m learning to love running one stride at a time. I own (and love) a very mouthy cat with a punk attitude and a slightly neurotic rescued mutt.
My favorite things to cook
Soups. Stews. Salads. Breads. Vegetables. Food for lunches that travels well in Mason jars. 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.
