I'm a librarian, a singer, and a Mom who has raised two terrific kids! I was raised very much "meat-potatoes-and Green Giant peas and corn", but my husband and kids and I are much more adventurous in our tastes and cooking styles now. I adore fresh fruits and veggies, and any kind of spicy food.
My favorite things to cook
Baking, especially cookies; Simple, quick dishes using fresh ingredients; Ethnic foods: Asian, Mediterranean, Mexican, Indian (did I say I liked spicy food??)
My favorite family cooking traditions
Baking lots of different kinds of cookies for Christmas - my Mom has set that example! Also, my Mom's corn pudding for Thanksgiving, my Grandma's German potato salad, and our latest family tradition: The Christmas Lasagna!
