In addition to baking, I enjoy reading, family genealogy, hiking, camping, fishing, beading, and sketching!
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake bread! It's good therapy! I also love to cook Chinese food, Mexican food, and good old fashioned American!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Getting up at 5am Thanksgiving Day and preparing the Thanksgiving meal; my kids and I baking cookies to eat while we open Christmas gifts Christmas Eve!
My cooking triumphs
The bread and pies I love to bake for family and friends!
My cooking tragedies
The first time I baked homemade bread! I was 17 and still lived at home. My family told me I'd never learn how to bake bread! BUT I proved them all wrong and now they ask me to bake bread for them!
