I'm married and have two beautiful children who love to help me cook and bake.
My favorite things to cook
Calzones, meatballs, banana bread, apple dumplings, chicken broccoli casserole, tator tot hot dish, to name a few
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love cooking with my children. They are ages 4 and 6. Once we were listening to Bob Marley while cooking and the song "Stir It Up" came on. Now it's sort of our cooking anthem song.
My cooking triumphs
The best thing I've ever made was baked halibut in a saffron broth topped with a kalamata olive and tomato ragout and served on top of saffron mashed potatoes. The halibut had a creole season rub. The whole meal was full of delicious flavors.
My cooking tragedies
When I first cooked for my husband while we were dating, I made chicken parmesan for the first time. I didn't go by a recipe and just made it how I thought it should be. The chicken was way too dry and was not good whatsoever.
