My favorite things to cook
Although I am not a vegetarian, I love to experiment with pastas and vegetables. I love to combine bright colors and textures. Since a recent trip to Greece, I have been trying my hand at that--with some good results. I love the fresh, simple ingredients, and the wonderful flavors!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Grandma is a fantastic cook, with one major fault: she never made enough stuffing on Thanksgiving! Mom is a great baker, especially cookies and sweet breads.
My cooking triumphs
Best chicken corn chowder in the world--recipe to be posted soon, I promise! Awesome cheesecakes!
My cooking tragedies
A three-layer cranberry cake made at the last minute (for the first time--big mistake) for a family do. It fell, I was late, and they ate without me. : )
