I live in WA with my husband and two step-children. I work as a consultant for an accounting firm, focusing on state and local taxes.
My favorite things to cook
I love making comfort foods and slow cooked dishes. I'm willing to try any recipe and have loved almost all the recipes I've tried from AllRecipes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My grandma's meatloaf and corny mac and cheese; mom's candied yams; and dad's coconut shrimp.
My cooking triumphs
My first Thanksgiving meal this year. Shockingly, everything turned out really good and the timing of the dishes was even on.
My cooking tragedies
Pizza! I tried to make a stuffed crust dough and ended up just mixing the cheese in the entire dough and baking it that way. The kitchen was a mess and I swore off pizza! I also tried to make Phad Thai, my husband's favorite-but it did not turn out...too much vinegar! Oops! :)
