I'm a certified dental assistant working as a dental receptionist. I run (5k's to 1/2 marathons), do triathlons (sprint distances so far), attend carshows with my husband Rob (we restored a '77 TransAm) and whatever other trouble I/we can find. To relax, I enjoy reading (especially cookbooks / magazines), take cooking classes, music, and I've just started standup paddleboarding yoga, just to name a few. I love sharing my baking--especially at Christmas. I bake, therefore I run!
My favorite things to cook
Baking is my thing--especially cookies! But, I will try just about anything (still working on pastry). Otherwise, I love trying different things in my slow cooker: stews, soups, chocolate cake, desserts, roasts. My most requested meal is my spaghetti and meat sauces with garlic bread but nobdy complains if/when I serve something else.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every time I have to cook for others. I always have new recipes for everybody to try. People always know they are my 'food guinea pigs'.
My cooking triumphs
Every new dish and/or meal is a cooking triumph. I love trying different things.
My cooking tragedies
Where shall I start? Too many to list but I do believe I am getting better. As long as it is somewhat edible....
