I'm a retired realtor who loves to entertain and cook for my family and friends. I also love outdoor activities including cross country skiing, gardening, sailing, hiking, walking. I've travelled more extensively than average and hope to continue to do so.
My favorite things to cook
A different dinner every night. I've been doing it since my kids were little. I love trying new recipes and the ones my family really likes get repeated occasionally.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas gingerbread house decorating. I made my own template many years ago so the houses are big. I decorated with my cousins' kids when they were little and now they're helping me do it with my grandchildren.
My cooking triumphs
I just won a chili contest - first place by unnanimous agreement of all the judges. It is no longer "Sarah's could win a prize chili". I now call it Sarah's prize winning chili. I made up the recipe by going online and looking at a bunch of recipes and picking ingredients that I thought would work and it did!
My cooking tragedies
I once tried to make angel food cake and it was a huge flop. That was at least 30 years ago and I've never tried again. I'll let my sister remain the queen of the angel food cake. Her's is excellent!
