I enjoy gardening, especially growing hydrangeas (not so easy in deer country!). My goal is to one day make an herb garden that looks like one of those really cool ones in English period movies.
My favorite things to cook
Israeli couscous with left-overs from the refrigerator ingredients. Canning, canning, canning!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Baking Christmas cookies.
My cooking triumphs
Nectarine conserve. Chocolate chip cookies. Chocolate bundt cake.
My cooking tragedies
Over cooked fish and cakes that don't come out correctly even though I've made them 20 times before.
