Born in Anchorage, Alaska. Reared in Indiana. Learned to cook from both Grandmothers and Dad. Picked up lots on my own traveling and spending time in kitchens around the world. Love to cook and bring back recipes from travels to try to match or better.
My favorite things to cook
Meats, Pasta, international foods. Desserts.
My favorite family cooking traditions
German, French, American. Recipe collections passed on to kids and grandkids.
My cooking triumphs
Made my own three tier from scratch chocolate wedding cake. Learned lots on that one.
My cooking tragedies
Forgot to add all ingredients to a few recipes. Those directions and ingredients are there for a reason.
