I love to cook; my husband loves to eat; works out great! Since my husband is from Greece, I am getting pretty good at re-creating his Greek favorites along with trying out new healthy ethnic recipes. It's been so much fun learning to prepare new cuisines and and cooking methods, although I must admit I'm a beginner when it comes to many of them. Our life is full of work, laughter, good food, precious family time, wonderful smells from the kitchen, good wine, and the love that makes every day an experience to treasure and pass on. He's a professional; I'm a home maker and we hope to retire in a few years so we can travel and spend more time together and with family.
My favorite things to cook
Mediterranean (often Greek) foods and trying out new veggie/meatless, wholesome recipes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Good food, good company, lots of laughs, good wine. It doesn't get better than that!
My cooking triumphs
Spanakopeta (Greek spinach pie), my version of Stifado, braised and roasted lamb shanks, Keftedes, and a few others.
My cooking tragedies
Many...as I try new cuisines and recipes and spices.
