I'm a high school teacher in Atlanta, GA and spend any free time that I have outside running, hiking, kayaking, or otherwise enjoying the outdoors. I am a vegetarian and love all things vegetable!
My favorite things to cook
I'll try anything once!
I typically don't cook or bake things that require a lot of detail... I rarely follow a recipe, as I prefer to start with an idea and make it up as I go. I guess that's the non-conformist in me coming out.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I grew up with large gardens and all of our produce has always come from the back yard. The summertime is GLORIOUS because there's nothing like eating fresh string beans, tomatoes, etc. straight off of the vine. Anything extra is given away, frozen, or canned. Even apples, cherries, and berries, always came from the backyard... I definitely miss that living in the city :(
My cooking tragedies
My Grandma taught me how to cook and bake at a very early age. I have come to accept the fact that I will never make a pie crust like she does.
