I am retired and love baking and trying new recipes. Cooking main courses is also fun.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite recipe is Finnish Coffee bread known as Pulla.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love meat pies at Christmas.
I make the coffee bread all year. It's a tradition to make it for special occasions and I have made it for fund raising events.
My cooking triumphs
I entered an apple pie contest and got 2nd place at an auction. It went for $70.
My cooking tragedies
I sprinkled my apple pie with salt thinking it was sugar. I quickly threw it out and made new ones and then won the apple pie contest as I mentioned above.
