About Good Canary
I know a few things. I can’t stand not to. And when I don’t know, I find out. I love teaching and learning and I hope to accomplish some of both here. Did you learn something? Let me know.
THE WHO and WHERE:
I was born and raised in Austin, Texas. I have spent most of my working life cooking and managing kitchens in various hectic diners and cafe’s and/or slinging coffee in awesome coffee shops. Now I make stuff and teach people things they may (and may not) want to know.
There are a lot of people writing about vegan, low-fat, nitrate-free, organic, free-range, gluten-free and/or all natural foods and recipes.
That’s a good thing because I am definitely not the person to do it.
I simply do not have the experience. You will never find any of that here because I don’t make it. I am from the south and I love comfort foods. I love cooking with butter and I love bacon and chocolate.
Sometimes at the same time.
I have been known to do the following (some professionally and some not so)
and then some:
cook, knit, paint, cross stitch, landscape, embroider, sing, fix cars, sew fabric, sew paper, assemble random, rusty, beautiful, and/or fragile objects, crochet, paper filigree, tile bathrooms and kitchens, make photographs, make things, break things and then fix them again, write, stencil, talk to loud, be too friendly, forget punchlines, walk into poles, snort when I laugh.
My husband and best friend of ten years is a mathematician and the most wonderful person I know. He encourages every endeavor, is often referred to as “RPK” and…
he took this picture. ↓
I can also be found on Ravelry.
