My favorite things to cook
I like to cook one-pot dishes and items I can freeze such as soups and chilis for quick meals because I am always on the go. I also love to cook with fresh, healthy foods such as salmon fillets and farmer's market vegatables when I have the time. Whole grains are also a big part of meals for me. I use whole wheat pasta almost all the time, brown rice, and have recently experimented with whole wheat couscous and quinoa.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My grandmother was Italian and cooked everything from scratch...gnocci, bread, perogies, pasta, soups, and tons of baking. I want my mom and I to get together more often to keep her mother's recipes alive.
My cooking triumphs
Fresh salmon fillets with a sweet thai chili mango & yogurt sauce. Healthy and delicious and very easy to prepare!
