GREATLY decreasing my use of processed foods. Not a food snob, but just realizing how much better things taste without all of the chemicals.

Well it's cooking related, over the course of 6 months I built a wood-fired brick oven and have been doing a lot of cooking in it, especially pizza.

Making my first batch of pistacho and cranberry biscotti's about 9 years ago. They were trendy back then and I could not believe they were this easy to make.

I loved it when my husband savored it with his coffee and declared they were better than the expensive ones he bought from starbucks and my co-workers could not believe I baked them and asked me to bake more.


Sorry you asked 2010, this is old and a simple thing but still remains my biggest achievement.

Learned to make pork tamales, dolmades, baklava and risotto in an electric pressure cooker... Hmm... that would make an interesting menu...

Shrek says, "There was that ettouffe' you made or that..." I think, he thinks, me just cooking anything is stellar.

To me, that's what's important.

He got a goofy look when I asked him...he says he thinks everything is so good. Shrek really is good for a girl's self-esteem.

I think mine is making pancakes from scratch. Never had them come out well before so always bought a mix. Then I found Goodweed's recipe. Haven't bought a mix since.
