This past weekend created some of the strangest weather I have ever been involved in. Throughout my life I have seen news reports and photos of people involved in terrible flooding and disasters but like so many I didn’t think it would ever happen to me or my friends but this weekend…
YMCA Parking Lot - My friend's car is on the far right
Friends car after flood
I am a runner/triathlete so I enjoy eating delicious, healthy food. I buy most of my food at the local farmer's market and enjoy trying new things with the local ingredients.
My favorite things to cook
I am a sucker for seafood. I love just about anything that comes from the water.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love making my grandmother's meatloaf. It reminds me of being a child.
My cooking triumphs
Creating a delicious (if not entirely authentic) Chinese New Year dinner for about 20 people.
My cooking tragedies
Pancakes. There is something with me and pancakes. I just can't seem to make them right. They are always too soggy or burnt or there is just something wrong with them.
