I've been married for six years and a Home Ec (cooking) teacher for six years as well. I really focus on tasty, nutritious and quick meal ideas with my students, who are in 8th to 12th grades.
My favorite things to cook
Got to be cookies. And muffins. I have a lot of cook's training and teach cooking myself, but I always come back to the baking I love! Also, I am very thrifty and often buy meat or veg that look good, or are on for a good price, then come to this website for ideas of what to make
My cooking triumphs
The first time I cooked for my in-laws ... beef tenderloin with roasted shallots (from allrecipes). They are meat and potato types and I know they loved it!
My cooking tragedies
Probably the worst was something I did to my students! I had perfected a granola recipe for them to make, and then must have made an error when typing it up. That granola was so dry and flavourless! Those poor kids ... I sure don't think I convinced them that adding grains and oats at breakfast is a tasty thing!
