Born, raised & living in the midwest. I love to bless people with good food!
My favorite things to cook
I love to chop things! Finding ways to add color, texture and healthy nutrition to recipes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom's jalepeno roast (beef, venison or buffalo) w/gravy (very spicy from the jalepenos!) My grandma's beef vegetable soup and her pickled mushrooms and wine and my other grandma's amazing cinnamon rolls and dinner rolls!
My cooking triumphs
Learning to make really good chicken soup without canned broth was my first triumph and my latest is creating a tasty 'healthy' version of the classic chocolate chip-oatmeal cookie for my husband. He's SO happy!
My cooking tragedies
Cutting up a whole chicken!
