I'm 6'4" tall and I love to make all sorts of things besides edibles...design clothing, shoes, hats, purses, quilts, home dec. and more. Also like to work with beads, wood, leather, paper, paint and too many to list them all here :)
My favorite things to cook
Nice homemade soups, and experimenting with unusual whole grains lately. I like to make the old favorites and try out new recipes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Western European heritage.
My cooking triumphs
Won first place in a cookie contest when I copied a German store-bought cookie [by trial and error]. I had done the copying for myself, because the cookies were so good. Winning $1,000.00 and a microwave in the contest was a really nice bonus :)
