I have a stressful life and when I cook all the stress seems to go away beacuse I am just focused on creating a great meal! I love creating new recipes and coming up with something from some random ingredients in the kitchen. I spend a lot of time on the America River during the summer with boating friends, the kitchen is minimum and I only have 2 small cook tops to work with. I cook for a large amount of people and love the challenge.
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy cooking breakfast and dinner. I do not cook a lot of red meat, if I do it is usually in a slow cooker. I love cooking fish because it's one of my favorite foods and a challenge to get just right.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every Christmas morning since my children were very young I have made egg benedicts for Christmas breakfast.
My cooking triumphs
Cooking on a boat for 20 people with the minimum space and ingredients.
My cooking tragedies
I have not perfected cooking a moist turkey and a lobster that is cooked just right.
