I live in a teeny tiny small town - in the very picturesque upper valley of New Hampshire with my husband, 2 children, 11, 4 and our 2 dogs.
My favorite things to cook
I love to grill steaks. We purchased a beauty of a VT Castings grill a few years back - and that's where you'll find me! On the off chance I'm not outside grilling - I'm with George Foreman - I am hooked on his next generation grill!!!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family's tastebuds are quite a challenge to please. Grilled steak and chicken breasts are the usual staple with salad, pasta or rice. My 11 yo daughter doesn't like foods that have more than 2 visible ingredients or with sauce (including pizza!!!) My 4 yo son is still tuning his eating habits - he'll have left over burgers or steak with croutons and string cheese for breakfast!!! So, needless to say - the only tradition we have is popcorn on most evenings.
My cooking tragedies
I tend to have a lot going on when I am preparing meals - last summer I put a corelle platter on a stove burner that I thought was off. I was lucky to have been the only one in the kitchen at that time, and not standing too close to the stove, because it blew apart like shrapnel - millions of hot, razor sharp pieces flew in all direction!
