i work with seniors. i like the water (re: i am not a natural hiker). i live in Davis and like it here, so quit trying to make me say that i want to move to the bay area. haha. no really.
and the farmers market is cute.
My favorite things to cook
Love to bake anything, am a big fan of learning new ways to cook fish, and am trying to "make over" recipes to be more healthy. its a losing battle.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Brownies. Pot roast. Amazing lime/mustard salmon. Working on some new ones...
My cooking triumphs
Lemon bars...messed around with many recipes until I created an awesome one - the key is definitely zest and more lemon juice, and a good shortbread recipe!
I guess the triumph is really having more successes than disasters, which i am prone to. haha.
My cooking tragedies
There isn't enough room. Lets see...I am famous for burning things (3 batches of brownies in one day), I made the most disgusting scallop/pasta dish that I threw down the disposal (it came back up through the pipes - I wanted to move from that apartment immediately, if not sooner).
horrifying fish curry that called for a huge amount of ground lemongrass and ginger - looked and tasted like cat sick.
