Married, two pets, love to meet new people, love to travel, and love to cook, learning something new every day. Have a spiritual side; like walks on beach, cool nights, sipping wine poolside under the stars; love to dance and sing when nobody is watching. Can never get enough of children laughing, rainbows, kittens and puppies, great steak, and fresh flowers.
My favorite things to cook
Bread, shrimp, muffins; macaroni and cheese, salads, any chocolate dessert; cheese cake and shortbread; roasted veggies.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom taught me to make chili con carne at a very early age, although I have changed a few things, I still make it "like Mum did".
My mother-in-law made wonderful stews, so I have taken it to a different level with a slow-cooker and perfected it.
My cooking triumphs
Making my own cheesey breadsticks from a modified shortbread recipe.
Making cream cheese stuffed-bacon wrapped baked poblano peppers my signature dish with many meals.
My cooking tragedies
Cookies - I can't bake cookies!!
First few times I roasted veggies they were either hard as rocks or so mushy they would make great baby food!
