Lived in Brussels, Belgium for nine years where I met and married an American, moved to the U.S. in 1998, stepmom of three, mom of one, step-grandma of three, fourth due in May.
My favorite things to cook
Healthy, low-fat but still tasty. I sneak shredded zucchini into everything. My son's favorite is chocolate chip zucchini bread from Cooking Light.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We have a big party every year for St. Patrick's Day. I enjoy introducing Irish/European cuisine to our friends. I serve sausage rolls, brown soda bread with smoked salmon, pate.....
My cooking triumphs
Beef tenderloin with blue cheese sauce, pork BBQ (both from AR).
My cooking tragedies
Too many to recall or admit! Most recent was overcooked whole wheat pasta....tasted grainy and disgusting! It's hard to convince my family to go for the healthy option when that happens!
