I guess you could say that I am a retired nurse (RN) I make and teach jewelry. All types: wire, hammered, fused glass jewelry, all types of jewelry made with seed beads. I learned how to do torch beads but I haven't done it very often. I of course enjoy cooking, especially now that I have had time to learn.
My favorite things to cook
I love grilling, especially fish. My husband and kids are my favorite audience, they love everything that I cook. My absolute favorite thing to cook is bread. Since I am always dieting it isn't as much fun anymore. I also enjoy my herb garden, I have grown my own herbs for over 5 years now, the past year I have had a bigger garden, before I had them mostly in pots.
My cooking triumphs
I recently cooked a cedar planked salmon that was awesome. I continually amaze myself, since my husband admitted to me that he didn't like my cooking. When we were first married, he would change something that I was making and used to make me so mad, but now I know that he just didn't like my cooking. I always thought my mother was a good cook, but I learned from her and now I realize she wasn't. Now that I can cook he loves my cooking!
