Cheese makes everything taste better! I cook to relax and unwind. I love to entertain often with something flavorful, new and healthy. Would love to open a bed and breakfast someday, but have never had any resturant experience. Waiting for my big break out of corporate life and into hospitality :)
My favorite things to cook
Pasta casseroles, anything on the grill, veggies galore, foriegn flavors and new exciting tastes...not the same ol' chocolate and vanilla. I love to bake and create desserts, but don't have a sweet tooth to go with all the output.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Mother still asks me to "doctor" up the gravy for large meals at her house.
My cooking triumphs
Cooked for and served 45 people for my rehearsal dinner. Was a lovely down-home menu. No stress, no complaints, very comfy, and absolute delish!
My cooking tragedies
A horrid green bean casserole served to 18 in Thanksgiving 2007. Never use previously frozen french beans in a green bean casserole.
