Married mother of one. Currently living in Arizona so if anyone has any great ideas on how to cook without heating up the house (besides grilling and crockpot) I'm all ears.
My favorite things to cook
Dutch food, Mexican food, and Italian...but pretty much anything goes :)
My favorite family cooking traditions
I have always loved to be in the kitchen. Apparently it's genentic or something. My grandmother's family owns a string of bakeries in Holland, and my grandfather was a chef for years. A lot of my recipes have a slightly European flare since thats where they come from, but I am open to all different kinds of recipes from all over the world.
My cooking triumphs
I finally, successfully made Chili Rellenos that weren't greasy and where the chilis weren't in shreds by the time I was done!
My cooking tragedies
Trying to teach my hubby to cook is the great tradgedy of my life...the man cannot read a recipe. Other than that, the most memorable recipe flop was green tomato pie....it was supposed to come out tasting kind of like apple pie...but, um..no, even the dogs wouldn't touch it.
