I've been married for 26 years, have two sons who are 25 and 19, and work part time as a nanny. I love to hike, bike, read non fiction, and x-country ski. I consider myself a foodie, but not a food snob.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I don't have any cooking traditions from growing up. Now though, my sisters and I get together frequently and make big meals for everyone. Not necessarily complicated things, just lots of variety.
My cooking triumphs
When I was 15 I made a loaf of Challah bread that everyone raved over. Recently, I made a flan for my Spanish class that turned out fantastic.
My cooking tragedies
When I was newly married, I tried to make a vegetable/bean soup from scratch using the ingredient list off the soup can, instead of using a recipe. I don't know what I did, but it was awful!
