I am retired. I do a lot of volunteer work. I love creating knitted items. I have a cat. I am an Air Force Brat so I have lived in many places and enjoy learning about others cultures.
My favorite things to cook
I have no favotites as every new thing I cook becomes my favorite. I do like fancy but easy desserts. In the summer I do a lot of fresh vegetable dishes.(1000 ways to prepare zucchini and like it)
My favorite family cooking traditions
The only recipe I have from my grandmother is a chocolate cake with no eggs. Its very moist and I love it.
My cooking triumphs
My newest one is a fresh fruit tart. Since blueberries are a fruit grown here in Maine, it had those and also raspberries and black berries. My biggest problem with this one was finding creme fraiche.( not in local stores)
My cooking tragedies
I don't really remember any.
