My husband and I moved to the mountains and built a log home in 2001. I now have lots of time to bake and cook and I really enjoy this laid back life style. Our main source of entertainment is getting together with friends for dinner. We started a dinner club with 4 other couples and it's been a wonderful opportunity to enjoy some really fantastic food and great friends.
My favorite things to cook
Mexican food, cakes, cookies, breads, seafood, soups & stews
My favorite family cooking traditions
When my kids come to visit I always make oven baked orange French toast for breakfast. I also make cinnamon rolls for different holidays. I like to make pancakes for my grand-kids and I make theirs in the shape of the first letter of their name. I also make Christmas cookies with my grand-kids.
My cooking triumphs
I made Bread Machine Bagels from this web site and they turned out so good!
My cooking tragedies
I made a tuna noodle casserole for my husband shortly after we were married 27 years ago. It was bad and I've never attempted another one.
