I am a high school teacher with two very active little boys.
My favorite things to cook
Bread! Baking bread is almost a magical process for me. Pair it with some homemade butter, and I'm in heaven.
My cooking triumphs
Discovering the perfect bread recipe. It's from a 1960's cookbook put out by Fleischman's yeast. Their sponge method bread is THE BOMB! Funny, though, I can't find it in their modern day site, only in that cookbook. It truly is the best recipe.
My cooking tragedies
Gee, where do I start? I have two boys who are vegetable-phobic and general picky eaters. I'm slowly building up a recipe library of food that my family will ALL eat! Trial and error, of course. I think the worst recipe was a chicken spaghetti recipe that made A TON of food . . . and no one in my family really liked it. I felt too guilty to throw out the leftovers, so I spent the next week eating it for meals. I actually didn't think it was that bad; it just didn't suit my family's taste.
