About this Cook
I am a stay at home mom/wife. Our 4 teenagers love me cooking for them. We have 80 acers and 4 acers of wild black berries. Our dream is to have a farm and one day completely live off the land. We just raised some pigs and had 2 of them butchered, so I'm going to be trying ever pork recipe I can find. This spring we're going to get some cattle and chickens. God has Blessed us so much :)
My favorite things to cook
Everything. I like to cook challenging things, and try international recipes. I am still learning to can, but I love it!
My favorite family cooking traditions
We love food and trying new things. My family loves me cooking dinners and desserts for them. For everyones birthday I cook them whatever they want. They like that and if they come request something, I try my best to make it for them. We always try the local food when we travel, so if it's something we really like, I learn how to make it.
My cooking triumphs
Canning, curry's, just about anything I try with a recipe
My cooking tragedies
baking potatoes in the microwave. I don't do so well without a recipe for a guide line

Italian Bread Bowls
I love these. I have made them several times. I have read reviews about them not rising. I had this problem once and I know why. I uses my kitchenaid for the entire process. You can't do that. You can use it to mix it all together, but then you actually need to turn it out on a floured surface and knead the dough.

Curry Tuna and Rice Casserole
I doubled the recipe and added a can of cream of mushroom instead of two can of cream of celery. I love curry, but the curry spice in this, I thought was just too much.

Catfish Gumbo
This is excellent!!! I thought the spices and the amount of veggies are well balanced. Very pleased and will make this again. I did leave out the celery (only because I was out) and I cooked the veggies in a little bit of water instead of the oil to cut out the fat.
