I am a registered dietitian with two adorable young children and a wonderful husband. We live on a small acreage farm and raise our own chickens. At some point we would like to add goats or cattle and we are also interested in beekeeping.
My favorite things to cook
I really enjoy baking more than anything else in the kitchen. I just wish it didn't dirty so many dishes! Cooking presents more of a challange for me. I seem to lack the cooking instincts of my mother who is a fantastic cook without the aid of a cookbook. It just goes to show that being a food science expert does not necessarily translate into culinary expertise.
My cooking triumphs
One of my cooking triumphs is mastering the apple pie. I don't even like apple pie but I have been told that I make a darn good one! Another triumph is finding the ultimate chocolate chip cookie recipe that my husband and I both agree is the best. I had to bake a lot of cookies to find "the one" but it was worth it and the chickens loved the rejects!
My cooking tragedies
Well, I haven't burned the house down but I have made my share of stinkers. Since I like to experiment in the kitchen I expect that will always be the case. Keeps the chickens happy anyway! :)
