Community Health Worker by day and artist by night (for now). I spend most of my free time being creative: writing, painting, cooking, baking, jamming.
My favorite things to cook
Jams, jellies, marmalades of almost any kind. Cookies, of course! Home made soups--once you go home made you never go back. For main meals, I like to explore, but some old standbys of mine are stuffed peppers, spinach lasagna, cabbage rolls (I'm Hungarian and like the traditional recipes), chicken paprikas, sheppard's pie, glazed meatloaf, maccaroni and cheese in the oven, beef tenderloin, and pork ribs.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My cooking triumphs
Beef tenderloin with carrot and parsnip ragout, the perfect chocolate chip cookie, apple butter BBQ sauce, killer stuffed mushrooms, I-didn't-fail-at-it pie crust, glazed bison meatloaf, pavlova, and the perfect brownie.

My cooking tragedies
. . . are many, but that's part of the process.
