A local Coloradoan, I enjoy being outdoors. Summers are wonderful, local produce is my favorite!
My favorite things to cook
I try to stay in season for most of my produce (saves money and tastes soo much better!) I used to be a baker for a local grocery store (this however was a few years ago) and I loved it! I've worked a couple food service jobs and learned how to toss a pizza and make some pretty decent homemade recipes. I like to reinvent old recipes, I also like to follow old recipes to their exacting specifications. It varies on my mood however and what's in my pantry. :)
My favorite family cooking traditions
My husbands side is German, mine is a slew of different heritages. Mainly German and Czech. I however stick more to an eclectic variety of foods.
My cooking triumphs
My first Cornish game hen. I don't know why I've always been really intimidated with cooking large cuts of meat (mostly the fear of over-cooking, or food contamination by not cooking fast enough).
My cooking tragedies
Trying to make Mousse. I have an old kitchen with very little electrical outlets. I'll admit I also don't have all the tools necessary to create perfect dishes. I try though. This however was a complete and utter failure.
