When I'm bored or stressed I cook or bake to take my mind to another place for a while. It's a relaxing hobby for me.
My favorite things to cook
Love to bake beautiful and delicious desserts. My strength is in fancy breads and cookies.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My husband and I love home cooking and rarely prepare anything out of a box. When family comes over for dinner they know they'll be getting a satisfying delicious square meal.
My cooking triumphs
Teaching my mother how to make yummy sweet dinner rolls using her much underused breadmaker. Now all the ladies in her church group beg her to bring her special rolls every week!
My cooking tragedies
Tried a low-fat cake recipe out of a weight watchers cookbook. Came out hard as a hockey puck and tasted just as bad. Taught me a lesson: if you're going to bake a dessert, do it right and use fat! Just don't eat a big piece when you're done. :P
