I love traveling and digging into local cuisine. Willig to try something at least once, no matter what i have heard about it.
My favorite things to cook
I love being presented with a stocked kitchen, being given free will and coming up with something. Some things have turned out well, less than desirable. But most turn out pretty dang great!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Being from the mid west there always has to be a meat dish, but as I've gotten older I have tried to not focus so much on the meat as making something great tasting and healthy. I think my family has moved more in that overall direction as well. Health first!
My cooking triumphs
Years ago before I knew who Emeril was I found a recipe of his in our local paper that sounded out of this world. It was a crab stuffed jumbo shrimp with a white bean relish and a tomato butter sauce. Let me say I have yet to top that one!
My cooking tragedies
Tragedies? I can't say that I can think of one. Maybe it was so tramatic that I have blocked it from my mind?!?
