I am a mother of three, a vegetarian married to a meat eater. I look for recipes that can be adapted. Thankfully my family eats a lot of good healthy vegetarian food and I'm spared eating too many veggie burgers.
My favorite things to cook
Baking bread by hand, kneading and all. Pastas and curries.Really whatever strikes our fancy.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love Thanksgiving. I remember my mother getting up early in her green apron, and cooking all day. The smells and the snacking made it the best day I remember.
My cooking tragedies
I once made a polenta casserole that looked lovely. Came out all bubbley and beautiful. But when I sliced into it, it turned into polenta soup.
