I was a cook in the Navy, (a long time ago). I much prefer cooking for my family than 2,000 sailors. :)
I have Hashimoto's thyroid disease and Celiac so eating healthy is a big priority for me. I eat low carb and like the challenge of making low or no sugar desserts and treats.
My favorite things to cook
I love making soups and salads. I also love to bake and come up with gluten-free recipes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Pumpkin and Pecan pies are a favorite at Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Summer is fresh salsa, and canning tomatoes from our garden.
In our house everyone must have chocolate cake with peanut butter icing for their birthday.
My cooking triumphs
Turning traditional wheat recipes into delicious grain-free alternatives.
My cooking tragedies
I once marinated chicken breasts in fresh pineapple juice too long and they turned to mush! Unfortunately it was when we had company over!
