My parents ran Dinks Diner, a mom n pop cafe, in Ulysses, Kansas for many years, retiring in 1975. I used to love to cook/experiment, until I married Scott.. a man with one virgin taste bud, and he's not willing to sacrifice it to anything but meat and potatoes. *L* I'm a multimedia artist, creativity is not limited to the canvas.. but extends to many avenues. My husband is attending Colorado Institute for Arts. New places to explore, and food to dissect!!
My favorite things to cook

My First attempt at wheat bread..Was so hard, it broke toothpicks! Gave it to our pastor in Kansas, as a paperweight! with this note, Man shall not live by bread alone, especially not this stuff!! ((we didn't think to seal the bread.. he had ants all over the place*LOL*))
