I am a music teacher (JK - grade 8 ) in a Christian school in Canada. I love to ski, walk, am learning to play golf. I love to read, spend time with my friends. My dependents are a 15 year old cat and an 11 year old car.
I'm actively involved in my church and community.
My favorite things to cook
I love to try anything once...but I probably prefer to bake. I have a rather contrary oven, but I still do my best.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom is a great cook... but stuck to mostly the basics. I like try out new things... when I was a kid, my specialty was spaghetti sauce.
My cooking triumphs
I make wicked guacamole dip, dutch almond bars. I tried the strawberry almond pie from this website and it was to die for... I made a couple of adjustments...
My cooking tragedies
Not realizing the difference between double acting baking powder and the other stuff... still don't really get that.
Dumping 8 tablespoons of baking powder into the flour, which was still in the flour bin...
Making cranberry coffee cake and forgetting to the put the cranberries in it.
