I love new recipes and surprising my family with ingredients they end up liking but would never think of trying.
My favorite things to cook
New, healthy recipes that actually turn out great! (Stuffed, hand roasted Pablano Chilies w/feta cheese and corn relish is currently my favorite!)
My favorite family cooking traditions
The night before Thanksgiving we all get in the kitchen - kids included - and chop, peel, grate, dice and slice the evening away! It really makes the meal more meaningful to know we all contributed and it makes 1/2 the work the next day (I pre-measure everything and store in zip locks).
My cooking triumphs
I prepared a sit-down meal for 50 guests at a surprise party... 3 different kinds of Enchiladas! It turned out awesome!
My cooking tragedies
Pop-overs that don't pop!
