Like most of us here, cooking is an relaxing and creative process for me. I am a single mom with a busy career and a house to manage. Saturday afternoons in the kitchen are a treat I treasure.
My favorite things to cook
Slow simmered pots full of flavors and layers. Rich hearty "Peasant" foods that provide comfort and satisfaction.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We make a stuffed bread with three meats and three cheeses combined with an egg filler every Easter, appropriatly called "Easter bread" we are not a creative bunch lol! It is on its 5th generation in my family.
My cooking triumphs
Killer salsa, Christmas cookies, biscotti, Sunday Gravy - some call it spaghetti sauce and a slow roasted garlic rosemary chicken that heals your soul.
My cooking tragedies
boxed brownies, pancakes. steak! Yes it is shameful...
