My Greatest Cooking TriumphAnytime I try something new and my husband and children gobble it up and ask for more, that is a triumph. Plus, anytime I can suit someone's special dietary needs with something special from my oven, that always thrills me. I take true joy in serving quality, yummy food to others!
My Biggest Kitchen DisasterThat is hard to say. I am always experimenting and in doing so, there will always be big flops! One of the worst was the first time that I tried to change a favorite recipe to be gluten-free for some friends. I made a peach cobbler (a tried and true recipe of mine) and simply substituted the regular wheat flour with rice flour. I didn't mix different flours or add xanthan gum. Not only did the top never really mesh together nicely, it simply tasted like sand. It was horrible. My friends were oh so gracious and ate it anyway. Little did I know at the time that they would end up being part of the family when I married my husband!
My Food For ThoughtI believe that God has given me a home so that I can open it up (along with our hearts) and share with others. I love entertaining guests in our home and always try to have something yummy on hand to offer anyone who stops by unannounced. If you come to my home, not only will you be welcomed with open arms, but you will be offered something to eat!
My InterestsI have several extended family members with Celiac disease, so I am always on the hunt for new gluten-free recipes and I am known to try to tweak favorite recipes to suit their needs
