I am a mom, business owner and a definite foodie.
My favorite things to cook
Right now I am working on grilling fruits and vegetables straight on the rack. None of this vegetable pan stuff for me! My favorite this season is a peach grilled with a vinegar/sugar/pepper sauce topped with gorgonzola.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Whole food ingredients, everything from scratch. My mother was a terrible cook, everything fried with oil, oil and more oil. Fortunately my father is an incredible cook. His disdain for restaurant food is starting to rub off on me as well, I agree, I can prepare much better food myself.
My cooking triumphs
Grilled salmon filet with fruit salsa.
My cooking tragedies
Spaghetti surprise! I read it on the back of a Bisquick box in '96 and my husband and daughter have not let me live it down since!
