My favorite things to cook
Living in norhtern Wisconsin the seasons dictate my cooking. The summer means hitting the deck and firing up the grill for brats, burgers, chicken and of course steaks. The winters bring out the chili and soup or stew recipes, but there is always the ultimate comfort of meatloaf and mashed potatoes with stewed tomatoes ladled over it. Yum-Yum
My favorite family cooking traditions
A big pot of pasta sauce simmering on the stove all afternoon, the aroma filling the house and makiing everyone hungry, then of course the big meal of pasta with meatballs, sausage and pork, add glass of red wine to finish things off just right. Family, great food and a Packer win makes for the perfect Sunday.
My cooking tragedies
Anything involving eggplant never works out. I have tried a few recipes over time and the only thing that seems to enjoy it is the garbage can. Thank god there's always a pizza in the freezer!
