I always loved cooking for my family and friends, and now that the kids are grown with their own families, I left my career in the legal field, and started my own catering business in February of 2002. I'm loving every moment!
My favorite things to cook
Mostly comfort foods, but I'm experimenting much more with the help of All Recipes. I'm having fun with more restaurant style recipes that I use in my catering service and at home.
My favorite family cooking traditions
One grandma was a wonderful baker, the other grandma couldn't cook her way out of a can of Dinty Moore, but they were both wonderful. As long as we sat at the dinner table together, the meal was great.
My cooking triumphs
Catering an outdoor wedding for 110 and doing it myself with help from one other person. And cooking for "my boys" (65 of them) and always getting the best compliments ever.
My cooking tragedies
Setting off a fire alarm when I didn't turn on the exhaust fan over the stove at a client's premises while toasting rice! I've learned to always turn on the exhaust in case the fire alarm is sensative!
