As co-owner with my husband of a small business, sometimes our lives feel rather hectic- so my favorite types of recipes are easy, tasty, and unique. I've been a vegetarian for longer than a year now after watching "Forks Over Knives". It's been a fun change of character and I'll probably never go back to meat.
My favorite things to cook
COOKIES! I bake all kinds of cookies- but not the fancy-smancy ones that are only good for looking quaint next to your cup of Earl Grey. I make fat, chewy ones that take a giant glass of milk to go down.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother was a busy lady, so she liked to make casseroles most days. But so what? Broccoli casserole, squash casserole, ratatouille: all delicious vegetarian meals!
My cooking triumphs
The Chocolate Chip Cookie. Honestly, I have tried different recipes but you can't beat Nestle Toll House if you do it right.
My cooking tragedies
It has taken me too long to learn the art of "sauce". "Don't put the heat on too high!" was my mom's rally cry.
