I am first and foremost a mother who is inspired by my kids to create & alter foods to they're likes & needs! Needless to say, no McDonald's happens in my house! I want my kids to remember to smell of fresh bread, cookies, roast, BBQ & all the good things I remember when I was a child.
My favorite things to cook
Any & everything! My favorite thing to do is to take an existing recipe and better it! Also make up my own recipes.I collect old recipe books and my prized possession is my box of vintage recipe cards & recipes that have been revised from the 18&19th century.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Canning and cooking with my mom
My cooking triumphs
Becoming a completely self taught gourmet cook & baker.
My cooking tragedies
In the beginning of my trial and error....it was mostly just errors!!!
