Retired Baker/ Cake Decorator and Air Force spouse, empty nester enjoying this next step of my life!
My favorite things to cook
breads, anything in my dutch oven, salads!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My Mom used to utilize every left over there was. She would make what we called "Glops"... some were better than others, some were spectacular. We took to jokingly numbering them in the hopes that we might be able to get the same one again some time. I don't think it ever happened.
My cooking triumphs
Successfully re-configuring my father's recipes originally in pounds and gallons into small, single batch recipes for household use.
My cooking tragedies
I am notoriously generous in putting fillings in my cakes... however...too much fruit fillings, in a 6 tier wedding cake might be yummy... it equals stacking disaster!
