I am a mom of two beautiful little ladies, ages 4 and 2 and they keep me very busy(as you can imagine) My family and I enjoy living on Kauai, it is such a beautiful place! I bartend part time which keeps me in touch with some colorful characters..tourists and locals alike! I will be haeding to nursing school once my youngest is in school, but for now I am enjoying them and trying to find lots of yummy new recipes for my husband and girls!
My favorite things to cook
Meat dishes, fish, cookies and cakes, anything slow cooker, Italian dishes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Well, my mom didn't really love to cook, but she makes a mean stuffed pepper and American chop Suey...I have yet to try those (don't think the little ones would love the peppers just yet!) My sister and her fiance live on Kauai too, so we are spending most holidays preparing meals for our family and friends on the island.Always looking for new traditions!
My cooking triumphs
I cooked mahimahi this past Valentines day that was just wonderful! My husband, Chris, likes to tease me how I told him I was NOT a cook before we married, but once we had babies I became a Domestic Diva! I make a pretty good meatloaf too!
My cooking tragedies
Hmmm....too many to count really! I put a glass dish in the oven once cooking Thanksgiving dinner and it exploded everywhere, not my best experience in the kitchen.
