My favorite things to cook
BBQ and grilling for parties; good friends, warm weather and luscious nibbles are the perfect combo. Cookies and small sweet; everyone loves them!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Aunt Sandy's Orange Mold (pureed apricots and sprite make this a smooth and refreshing addition to Thanksgiving dinner)
My cooking triumphs
Standing rib roast; a 5 bone monster for Xmas 2006
My cooking tragedies
When I was 9 I accidentally used salt instead of sugar in a batch of cookies; it made me a fanatical labeler/taster.
