I'm a single Mom to a sweet ten-year-old girl. Spending as much time with her as I can is really important to me, so I love meals we can do together that are quick and easy! Except for the weekends when we can get more adventerous!
My favorite things to cook
I love Asian food, and I'm pretty proud of my home-made curry spice combinations. I also love to cook chicken and one-pot dishes (stews, casseroles, etc.) I also love to bake, especially in the cold weather!
My favorite family cooking traditions
The major holidays always involved large meals, so that is something I'm still drawn to. I learned most of my Italian cooking from my Mom.
My cooking triumphs
I feel very comfortable experimenting with dishes and combinations of ingredients. That leads to some disasters, but some really good things, too.
My cooking tragedies
My "Three P Soup" (peas, pears, pasta) was NOT good. Probably the worst, however, was the cheese biscuits I brought to a church potluck one time. The hostesses thanked me graciously, but the biscuits never made it to the table! Nor did I think they would--but I wanted them to know I had tried!
