47-year old Personal Trainer, Seamstress, and good at all sorts of boring domesticated stuff. Mother to seven total, but only one left at home. And now a grandma!
Love my family, my God, my Dog, and my Dodge Ram. I may be from California originally, but I have morphed into a true Texan!
My favorite things to cook
I love turning out healthy food that tastes good. People come over to eat and they don't realize it's good for them.
On the flip side, I love to bake desserts, limit myself to once a week max. If I don't, I'll eat it!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I used to cook with my Mom and my Grandmas. They would stand me up on a chair and let me bake with them when I was small. I carried the same tradition on with my children, and hope to do the same with Grandbabies.
I have my Grandma Morris' hands, whom I loved dearly. She died this past spring, and now when I cook I see her hands doing the work and know that part of her lives on.
My cooking triumphs
I can now tweak a baking recipe without destroying it! :-)
My cooking tragedies
As experienced a cook as I am, just a couple of weeks ago I made a brick that was supposed to be a loaf of bread. Was reminded that it's handy when making yeast bread if you actually put YEAST in the bread maker!
