I cook for my husband and two children as well as for friends and family. Both my parents cooked, and my hubby and his family are good cooks, so lots of homemade meals here. We try to sit down together as a family most nights for dinner, even if it's simple and quick due to our activities! I am always learning...trial and error!
My favorite things to cook
Salads, classic American dishes, traditional holiday foods, as well as ethnic meals such as Thai, Chinese, Mexican, and Indian-inspired.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Tzimmes for the Jewish New Year (a mixture of carrots, sweet potatoes, prunes, honey), and Matzoh Ball soup; my mom's meatloaf that is the ultimate comfort food.
My cooking tragedies
Burned, dry briskets; blackened chocolate chip cookies
