A mommy of little children who loves feeding her family yummy, healthy meals. I mostly use published recipes as a base and add my own flavors and/or lower the fat content.
My favorite things to cook
heart heathy meals and anything baked
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas Stollen, I guess. Started my own. My mother didn't really cook or bake. However, my father is/was an excellent chef. My famous chocolate-mocha pound cake for birthdays. My chocolate zucchini bread and my cranberry orange bread.
My cooking triumphs
Butternut Squash Risotto, Chicken & Dumplings, Soy/Beer Marinated Salmon with Cilantro, Coconut Chutney--not my own recipes, but I do them very well.
Anything that is baked. Okonomiyaki (I finally have a perfected recipe--Osaka-style).
My cooking tragedies
Too many to count!
