About this Cook
I like to consider myself a free spirit in a do gooder body. I've never been much of a cook, actually dread trying to come up with something for dinner each night.
My favorite things to cook
I don't have any favorite things at this time. Easy, healthy and quick are usually my recipes of choice.
My favorite family cooking traditions
The men in my family have always cooked. My dad and brother are fabulous in the kitchen.
My cooking triumphs
I brought home a blue ribbon from the Lane County fair this year in the plum preserves special categories using my Nana's recipe for an Asian / Hawaiian snack "prune mui". I called it dried plum mui because some people just don't like prunes. I have never canned before and out of the six jars, only four sealed properly. I only needed two for the fair. Fun, fabulous experience. I'm already thinking about what to make next year.
