My main work is knitting but when I'm not doing that I enjoy cooking for a hungry crowd.
My favorite things to cook
I LOVE making breads. I hope to take a breadmaking class at a local cooking school in the near future.
My favorite family cooking traditions
When I was attending engineering college, I would have the family save the little scraps of leftover meats and put them in a milk carton in the freezer. At the end of the month, I'd stick all the meats in a crock pot and make a pot of chili to bring to the student lounge. They must have been hungry 'cause I still don't make a great chili!
My cooking triumphs
Friends have asked if they could buy the food and have me cook for them becasue they preferred my cooking to restaurant cooking!
My cooking tragedies
Corn Dogs -- I "learned" how to make corn dogs and tried to make them at my home. The corn batter was tough and so dense that when I went to feed it to the ducks, it sank to the bottom of the pond!
