I am a Utah native with two grown boys (three, if you count my husband!) who love to cook and bake as much as I do. When I'm not playing in my kitchen, I'm reading, walking with my puppy, or watching a movie with my family. I taught in Elementary and Junior High schools for many years and retired after a few years as a Special Education Administrator.
It was in one of these classes that someone suggested I begin a blog and share my recipes. I have had a blast researching, testing and sharing only the BEST recipes. Since I can't be in your kitchen guiding you every step of the way, it's my goal to SHOW you how to make bread and other yummy comfort foods, STEP by STEP, and learn some tips along the way. A tip? Practice, practice, practice. Never give up. Surrender to the intoxicating aroma of a freshly baked loaf of bread, crusty roll, or a buttery breadstick.
Another adventure I have been enjoying is pressure cooking. I got my first stove top pressure cooker at my wedding many moons ago, and used it for cooking vegetables. Fast forward to 2010 when I spied an electric pressure cooker, that looked so much easier to use! I began experimenting more, cooking fork tender meats, pasta, steamed veggies, and ultra smooth cheesecakes. My latest electric pressure cooker now allows our family to enjoy smooth, creamy yogurt on a daily basis.
I enjoy every step of the way, and I hope you do, too.
