I'm very involved in volunteer work in the community - I'm on several boards - fundraising is a primary interest; don't have quite as much time to cook as I'd like.
My favorite things to cook
Yeast breads, any baking, cooking for friends. I like to try anything new.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I have no family cooking traditions, my cooking interests have developed with time and a husband who is always ready to try something different.
My cooking triumphs
Making my own wedding cake. I bought a book on cake decorating - I was really happy with the results.
My cooking tragedies
a batch of bread in which I forgot to add the yeast! Even the birds wouldn't eat it.
