There’s just something about a river that I have always loved-constantly moving and making noise.  hmmmm….sounds very familiar. So, when you talk to me about rivers or fly fishing, I’m all ears.  There’s especially a type of cast when fly fishing that appeals to me.  It’s called the Belgian… MORE

About Me
I work for a commercial insurance agency, so cooking is the creative outlet that I need. I love to create my own recipes, cook for others and blog about cooking at http://rustyspatula.com/. My two grown sons grew up cooking in our kitchen, and now I enjoy cooking with my 5 year old grandson.
My favorite things to cook
Baking is my favorite thing to spend time doing. The science of baking has always fascinated me. From the time I was 12 I couldn't understand how popovers rose and kept their hollow middles and just had to see for myself by making them at 2 a.m. on a school night. I got grounded from the kitchen after that stunt.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Any holiday-my personal favorite? Halloween It wasn't until I had 2 kids of my own that I discovered how fun Halloween cooking can be!
My cooking triumphs
-Cooking among professional chefs in The 2013 World Food Championship -Representing Bob's Red Mill in Scotland in the World Porridge Making Competition -Winning Bob's Red Mill Spar for the Spurtle in 2013 -Appetizer Host for Kraft's Real Women of Philadelphia contest for season -Making cooking videos for Kraft as contracted.
My cooking tragedies
I've had plenty-from burning toast to ruining an expensive piece of steak, if you cook enough, tragedies are bound to happen. Just like in life, live and learn.
