I work as an office manager to fund my interests. Following the "empty nest" shock of no longer running constantly, I have taken to playing in the kitchen!
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy baking breads and making soups.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Grew up on Hamburger Helper so there were no traditions.
My cooking triumphs
Served an awesome cheesecake with lady fingers as the "crust." I cannot now find that recipe; but it was devoured!
My cooking tragedies
There are two that stand out - my first bread baking attempt, I killed the yeast by dissolving it in water too hot; the second, made great meatballs for our office party, removed them from the oven and dumped them in my newlywed kitchen. As J. Child would say, "No one will know the difference;" and they didn't!!!
