I grew up watching my mom cook some wonderful meals and she taught me well.
My favorite things to cook
For family I cook a variety of foods; for myself I look for recipes with raw ingredients, fresh produce, and I love to juice my fruits and vegetables!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Homemade bread, as much gluten free as possible :-D
My cooking triumphs
First big turkey I fixed at age 18 was 25 lbs, and it came out fabulously!
My cooking tragedies
At Christmas one year I made adorable teddy bear bread loaves with tuxedos on and they caught fire in the oven. It seems there was gooey sugar on the bottom of the oven from the previous baking event, pecan pies...that were over-filled. Yes, I know.
