I belong to a food co-op, so buy most things in bulk, store, and rotate items. I could survive "bird flu" no problem without leaving my house for a few months!
My favorite things to cook
Gourmet breads from whole-grain flours that I grind myself fresh right before I bake the bread. Yum!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Anything from scratch. No processed ingredients!
My cooking triumphs
When I left home for college, I couldn't boil water. Now I'm a fantastic cook, (which even my father must admit!). Hee hee! I am especially good at never wasting left-overs. I can always find some way to incorporate them into the next meal. Providence is my hallmark.
My cooking tragedies
Not too many, but there were were a few loaves of "brick bread" when I was learning!
