Just a girl living in the Heartland. I enjoy photography and learning language. I cook mostly for my guy and his 10 year old daughter.
My favorite things to cook
I love pies but have not mastered pie crust. I'm a huge casserole and crock pot cooking fan.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom's chili, homemade bread and our family coffee cake.
My cooking triumphs
Mastering a family bread recipe that had no recipe! Many hours spent in the kitchen watching my mother and great grandmother as they threw in this and that during the stages.
My cooking tragedies
Pie crust remains my nemesis. I love pies but stick to single crusted pies for the most part.
