I love to bake and my husband
loves that I love to bake :)
Trying new recipes and
modifying to make them my own
seems to be my style of cooking.
I always tell folks I don't
think I have made the same dish twice. I seem to be unable
to stop experimenting; and
cooking calms my soul. I can
stay in the kitchen for hours
and only stop cooking because
I do have a food budget!!
I make my own dogfood and dog treats and I swear I may just
begin making treats for the neighborhood squirrels. NOT!
I love to read, work in the garden, and work in the yard.
I have a degree in Computer Information Science, live in
the Rocky Mtns, and love camping
in our National Parks.
Life is good in Colorado!
My favorite things to cook
My favorite thing to cook is anything that is sweet and
must be baked. So baking is my favorite thing to cook but I
spend plenty of time slow
cooking and grilling in the
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving! Several traditional foods and I always love to cook something new for the Turkey Day table.
My cooking triumphs
Fudge! I worked for years
to make a good fudge and more
often than not it just did
not turn out for me. Then
one Christmas my daughter,
who is now32 wanted to
make fudge together. Being inspired and not wanting
to blow it for her, I
found the greatest fudge recipe, (Marbled Fudge in an old Betty Crocker recipe book, I received
as a wedding gift 15 years ago)followed the recipe to
the letter,and WOW it worked!
I have been making huge
batches of fudge for years.
Now I even give away
fudge for Christmas.
My cooking tragedies
The first year I was married, following Thanksgiving, I
decided to try a Turkey Lasagna.
I used veges, turkey,
lasaga noodles, and an
alfredo sauce. Well,
my husband hated it and
begged me never to make it again.:)) I never did.
