I'm a teacher, writer, mother, gardener, runner. . . and I love to eat, so I cook good foods that are healthy and economical.
My favorite things to cook
pasta dishes, soups, breads, desserts
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving--everyone gets together and makes the stuffing.
My cooking triumphs
recently: I made some tilapia with wine sauce that was to die for. . .
years ago: I made my own sourdough starter and supplied my family with breads and sweet rolls.
My cooking tragedies
Chicken stuffed with broccoli, coated with a nut topping. . . it was a recipe I made up when one of my sons had company, and it was nearly inedible!
