I'm a retired barista turned stay at home Mom and Wife.
My favorite things to cook
Making gourmet coffee drinks is my real area but I also love to bake and experiment with international cuisine. Greek, Italian, Morrocan, African, Polish- I love to try new things. I also enjoy the soul and Southern comfort food of my roots in Northern Florida allthough I try to modify the traditional to a healthier staple. Health and nutrition is a very important factor in the recipes I choose and create.
My favorite family cooking traditions
When I was young we went camping with the Girl Scouts often and made 'foil packs'. I use the same idea in a lot of my cooking.
My cooking triumphs
I think my best product is muffins. I bake a batch of muffins in various flavors at least 3 nights a week (to enjoy the next morning). I also have a great Greek lamb gyro meal down pretty well! I use this website several times a day and am always getting better.
My cooking tragedies
I can't seem to make brownies that I feel confident in! It drives me crazy because my Hubby is a big chocolate fan. I'm still looking for the perfect recipe.
