I enjoy birding, especially bluebirds. I also like gardening. I like to grow my own herbs. I have dermatomyositis: an auto immune disease. It has really changed my life.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake: breads, cakes, pies, cinnamon rolls. I also enjoy trying new recipes and choose healthy recipes most of the time. I like to make pasta recipes and salads.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I always bring the desserts for family get togethers. I am wanting to make more artisan breads.
My cooking triumphs
Baking breads, rolls, pies and gourmet dishes.
My cooking tragedies
My biggest mistake in cooking is sometimes under baking my breads. I have decided to use a thermometer: when it reaches 180* it's baked.
