I work full time in human resources at a casino. I have a 5 year old daughter. She loves to help in the kitchen! I love to try new recipes.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook things that have the wow factor. I love it when someone tastes my food and tells me how good it is.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother only makes the family stuffing recipe twice a year. Once at Thanksgiving and once at Christmas. Ever since I was little, it has been my job to break up the toast and cornbread into small pieces. I'm now 30 years old and I still do it every year.
My cooking triumphs
One of my favorite cooking memories is when I was about 14 years old. I made a chocolate souffle for my mom's guests. It was perfect and so good!
My cooking tragedies
One Thanksgiving I made a casserole and kept it in the oven to keep warm. I forgot it was in there when I turned the oven back on to preheat for something else. Well, the casserole was burned to a crisp. But luckily I had enough that we really didn't miss it.
